When the Lincoln Herald began reporting local news for Lincoln, Gaston, Catawba & Cleveland counties in 2012, most people read our articles on a desktop or laptop computer.  Now, most people read us on their smartphones.

More people now get their news online than from any other source.  As print newspaper circulation has dramatically declined, even major newspapers now have more online readers than print subscribers.  We've been providing FREE online local news, sports, obits & more for almost nine years now.  Unlike newspapers who only print on certain days, we're here every day.

Anyone can read our articles without having to pay for a subscription; we post links to them on Facebook and Twitter; and those who have signed up for our email service--also FREE--receive a daily email with links to all the articles we've posted since the previous day.
