About Us

The Sigourney News-Review celebrated its sesquicentennial anniversary in 2010 for delivering news to Keokuk County. Sharing the lives of our neighbors and friends is a vital part of what we do at the Sigourney News-Review, said Robin Handy, SNR Editor. Presenting these stories has changed quite a bit over the last one hundred and fifty years and we are excited to be a part of that growth and development for the Sigourney community. Events, activities, sports, business and government achievements are shared today via a multitude of mediums including our print newspaper, our website (www.sigourneynewsreview.com), Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. While preserving our journalistic integrity, we continue to stay on the forefront of communication technology.

The SNR is also a source for custom printing projects for both your personal and professional needs. We offer a wide range of high quality products created to meet your personal specifications.

The Sigourney News-Review was established in 1960 after the consolidation of the Keokuk County News and the Sigourney Review by, then publisher, Don Adams. He successfully operated the thriving publication until his retirement. Current publisher, Ken Chaney and his wife, Zelda, purchased the Sigourney News-Review on July 1, 1989 and after twenty years of ownership, sold the newspaper to Mid-America Publishing Corporation in January of 2008. He remains as the Publisher and Advertising Sales Manager.

Mid-America was started in 1962 by the Archie family of Shenandoah. It has long owned, operated and printed newspapers throughout the state. In addition to the Sigourney News-Review, the corporation currently owns and operates twenty-four print publications and supporting technological advancements.
