The paper 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. Former publisher Ken Chaney and his wife, Zelda, purchased the paper on July 1, 1989 and after twenty years of ownership, sold the newspaper to Mid-America Publishing Corporation in January of 2008.

Mid-America was started in 1962 by the Archie family of Shenandoah. It has long owned, operated and printed newspapers throughout the state.
