Tarboro NC: Daily Southerner Newspaper Shut Down On Friday May 30, 2014 No More Papers


The Daily Southerner Newspaper last day was yesterday Friday May 30, 2014. This is going to be interesting because there will be a lot of meetings in the Tarboro area, school board, county commissioners and other will now have to be covered by the Rocky Mount Telegram alone. I believe the Southerner did a more thorough reporting on the news in the Tarboro area.

  1. Sad day for Tarboro and Edgecombe County. We finally get a black newspaper editor and they close it down. NOT a coincidence!

    • just as well roll up MainStreet Tarboro. I grew up with the Southerner as most baby boomers did. Still followed it daily online although I have not lived in Tarboro for years. An icon is lost.
