TROUP COUNTY, Ga. (WTVM) - A local newspaper has shut its doors permanently after 17 years due to ‘economic circumstances’.

The August 9 edition of the Troup County News will be its final edition.

According to Troup County News’ Facebook post, the paper was founded in 2005 by Judy and Eddie Murphy as a free circular. In just a few short years, the paper grew to a full-size newspaper with three editions per week and thousands of subscribers.

Troup County News thanks all of its loyal readers for 17 great years as “Your Locally Owned Newspaper.”
