About this company
The El Dorado News-Times traces its roots back to the El Dorado Times, which first published in 1889. In 1928, C.E. Palmer purchased what had become the News-Times Publishing Co. Mr. Palmer’s son-in-law Walter Hussman, Sr. took over in 1957 after Palmer’s death. Hussman’s son, Walter Hussman, Jr. remains as Chairman of what is now known as WEHCO MEDIA, INC.
In addition to El Dorado, WEHCO MEDIA, INC. owns newspapers in Camden, Magnolia, Hot Springs and Texarkana, as well as the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette in Little Rock and the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette in Fayetteville, the Chattanooga Times Free Press in Chattanooga, Tennessee and three newspapers in central Missouri.
