The Galion Inquirer Is Moving to Mount Gilead

The Galion Inquirer has been a top source of news and information, as well as part of the fabric that makes up life in Galion, Ohio since its founding in 1890 - and while it's been through many changes - it remains in existence and continues publishing news about Galion - it's about to become part of another city's history as well.

That's because the Galion Inquirer is moving to a new location (in Mount Gilead, Ohio) to share an office with its sister publication, The Morrow County Sentinel.

The Advantages of Older Newspapers Joining Forces


Combining resources with two news publications is actually, in my opinion, a really smart move on the part of a traditional news publisher, such as the Galion Inquirer.

Changes in the News Industry: The newspaper industry has taken numerous hits over the years as the internet changed the face of how people choose to get information.
  • It's made it hard for newspapers to keep up.
  • In the case of the Galion Inquirer, a decline in the demand for a newspaper that used to come out five days per week has left us with a newspaper that's printed twice per week - and that will now be sent out from another city.

Sharing Resources to Cut Costs: Sharing resources and staff members between the two publications should, at least in theory, allow for more agility in reporting news for both publications.

Speed of Internet Information Sharing: In today's 'information age' lifestyle, sharing news 'at the speed of light' - or at least at the speed of a wireless connection - should help the Inquirer and the Sentinel keep putting out the news readers want.

Non-Local but Still Local News? I'm afraid this is my one concern with the merging of these two publications and Galion reporters working from another city... I'm curious to see how it goes for them.

I wish the Galion Inquirer and Morrow County Sentinel the best of luck moving forward and look forward to seeing how the Inquirer will manage to provide local information to Galionites while working from Mount Gilead.

How Galionite Can Help Fill the Local News Void


Because it's locally owned and managed, Galionite maintains a presence here in town. I've mainly shied away from news and tried to maintain Galionite as a basic information and 'fun Galion facts' site because I felt, for the most part, but with a few gaps here and there, the news was already covered by the local Galion paper. (Plus, I have a regular job and there are only so many hours in the day so I was posting here in my spare time.)

Because the existing news source is changing its home location, Galionite will be stepping up to introduce a few (gradual) changes.

Submit Your News Story to Galionite: As an interim measure, I'll be having one of my helpers put up a form where you can submit your news story or press release if you would like to have it covered by Galionite.

New Information Pages Pending: Galionite will be adding a news page or possibly pages for a few different aspects of local Galion news.

Developing a Galion App for Mobile Devices: While the Galionite website/blog is available for use on mobile devices, we've been asked by a few people to develop an app that can be downloaded to smartphones and tablets.
  • The Galionite App is in the early stages of development, and we'll keep you posted when it's ready for downloading.
