The County Journal Office in Percy


Thomas Jefferson understood the need for an informative media. Randolph County is privileged to have great newspapers and broadcast radio. They keep our citizens informed of national and international information, but they focus primarily on local news and sports stories. There is a vary honored tradition of local sports in Randolph County. Our media also help promote our existing businesses and aid in attracting new businesses to the community.

There are many Sites to see and History to celebrate, as well as the beauty of Nature in Randolph County. Of course, we want the world to know about our community, so we partner with regional organizations like Tourism Bureau Illinois South. You can find loads of information about Randolph County in the TBIS Visitors Guide.

In order to tell the rest of our story to the world, we work in tandem with Expansion Solutions, a leader in economic development. We also maintain Pinterest and Facebook pages and post video products to YouTube.

Finally, several local business leaders promote Randolph County by writing magazine articles concerning Agriculture, Manufacturing and Utilities.
