About The Wakulla News…
The Wakulla News was established in 1895 and has been the county newspaper of record focusing on issues that are important to Wakulla County residents. The Wakulla News provides hard news, features, government news, community interest stories, and local sports coverage. Our readers encompass a wide variety of demographics, from the descendants of pioneer families in local fishing villages to families who are new to the area brought here by the close proximity to the state capital, two major universities, and a large community college. The Wakulla News has a paid circulation of about 5,500 hitting the racks each Wednesday afternoon and delivered by mail to subscribers every Thursday.
The Wakulla News publishes several special interest sections each year which include, but are not limited to, Green Living & Energy; a high school graduation section in May; a local hurricane guide in June; a Reader's Choice section in the summer; a Back to School section and a local Football section in the fall; political sections specific to election years; and a holiday greetings section every December.
