Redding Record Searchlight
|Publisher||Steve Smith |
The Redding Record Searchlight is a newspaper serving Redding, California. It has a daily circulation of about 30,000 and hosts a Redding news Web site, Redding.com.
In the 1980s and 90s the paper was known to skirt hot topics and deliver fluff pieces instead. Due to this practice it earned itself the nickname "Wretched Flashlight."
On October 17, 1938, the John P. Scripps Newspaper Group published the first edition of the Redding Record, which after a series of acquisitions became the region's dominant daily newspaper under the nameplate Redding Record Searchlight.
