About the York Dispatch

Mission statement: 

Our mission is to be the key provider of news that helps residents of York County, Pennsylvania, make intelligent decisions as citizens and consumers and to be the preferred information source for matters of significant community interest.

Two voices in York County:

Founded in 1876 by Hiram Young, The York Dispatch is the longest continuously published newspaper in York County. A longtime evening publication, the Dispatch is now published weekday mornings by The York Dispatch Publishing Co.

Under a Joint Operating Agreement, there are two daily newspapers in York -- the Dispatch and the York Daily Record. Although the newspapers have separate, competitive news staffs, they share advertising, circulation and printing, and both are based at a facility owned by the York Newspaper Co. at 1891 Loucks Road in West Manchester Township.

Many platforms:

In addition to our print publication, readers can find us online -- 24 hours a day, seven days a week -- here at, where the news comes alive with video and other multi-media extras. By downloading our mobile apps and bookmarking our social media sites, readers will never miss the latest local news, sports, weather and opinions.

Make your voice heard:

If it concerns York County, the Dispatch wants to spread the word. As a community newspaper, we attempt to reflect the lives and interests of our readers, but we need their help.
