The Times-News is the daily newspaper for Hendersonville, North Carolina, and its surrounding area. It has served Henderson, Transylvania and Polk counties in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina since 1927. The Hendersonville Times began in 1881 and the Hendersonville News in 1894.[1]

In December 1985, it became an A.M. paper and added a Sunday edition. With a daily circulation of approximately 15,000, the Times-News averages about 40,000 readers per day.

In May 2007, it relaunched its website (formerly known as HendersonvilleNews.com) as BlueRidgeNow.com.

The Times-News was owned by Halifax Media Group until 2015, when Halifax was acquired by New Media Investment Group.[2][3]
