It covers the city of Greenfield and several nearby communities in Hancock County, Indiana. In addition to the daily newspaper, the Daily Reporter produces two weekly newspapers in Hancock County, the Fortville/McCordsville Reporter and the New Palestine Reporter. Home News also owns a third weekly in neighboring Madison County, The Times-Post.
Robert N. Brown, whose grandfather had started The Republic in Columbus and who himself had founded the Daily Journal in Franklin, both in communities south of Indianapolis, purchased the Greenfield Daily Reporter in 1973, a year after the death of Dorothea Spencer, whose family had started the paper in 1908.
He said at the time that his goals for the newspaper would be "reflecting the total image of a community in news coverage, to serve community betterment, and to provide counsel in its editorials as public conscience."
Home News expanded its holdings east of Indianapolis in June 2007, with the purchase of two weeklies in Madison County, the Lapel Post and The Pendleton Times, which it combined into the Times-Post of Pendleton.
