About Us

Randolph News Now is Randolph County’s leading breaking news site and serves as a local source for reporting for the citizens of Randolph County on crime, weather, events, and alerts.

The site was started in late 2020 by Acme News to provide breaking news and local reporting after the county’s largest newspaper eliminated local editoral staff and stopped reporting on breaking news.

In 2022 Acme Ventures LLC, the parent company of Acme News, announced that they had reached a deal with the North State Journal to purchase the site. By 2024, the purchase of the site was complete and North State Journal took over ownership of the site.


Randolph News Now is owned by the North State Journal. Journalism services are provided by Acme News, whose journalists work under contract for the North State Journal.

This site is supported through both local and national (third-party) advertising.
