Surry Messenger moving to larger office

March 7th, 2008 · No Comments

A little more than eight months after opening for business, the Surry Messenger will be moving to an office three times larger than its current quarters at the New Market Crossing shopping center in Mount Airy.

Publisher Mike Milligan made the announcement Wednesday.

“We’re thrilled to be progressing to this next stage in our growth,” Milligan said.

The 5,200-square-foot space at 101 W. Lebanon St., formerly occupied by Interiors, will provide room for The Messenger to expand its operations, including business ventures such as web and graphic design, magazines, public relations and advertising placement services and its growing preprint advertising business, Milligan said.

The Surry Messenger is the first daily newspaper started in North Carolina in the past 40 years. It was founded by former employees of The Mount Airy News and Elkin Tribune after Heartland Publications bought those two newspapers. Now Surry County’s largest newspaper in terms of circulation, The Messenger is delivered free to 10,800 homes in Mount Airy, Dobson and Pilot Mountain in North Carolina and in Cana, Va.

Renovation of the new offices is expected to take about a month. The move to the new office may come in early April.
