Aug. 26, 2019 – Dunlap News will cease publication Saturday, Aug. 31, due to health concerns of the managing editor, Karen House.
Dunlap News first began publication Jan. 1, 2016, as a strictly online news source for Dunlap and Sequatchie County. During the three years eight months it has been in operation, it has been the only locally owned news source for Dunlap and has covered everything from wrecks and arrests to meetings of local governments, to local events like the Hwy. 127 Yard Sale and the county fair.
During that time, Dunlap News Facebook built up a following of over 6,500 from all over the United States.
The Dunlap News Facebook page was deleted last week. Although this website may remain online for a few days after Aug. 31, except for the automatic stream for weather and international news on page 1, the Dunlap News website will not be active after that date.
