The financial fallout from the coronavirus pandemic has forced us to reorganize the Wayne County Outlook’s distribution of local news, features and sports.

Today’s print edition of the Monticello paper will be the last produced and sent to subscribers’ homes or made available at newsstands. 

Effective next week, we will distribute the Wayne County Outlook content exclusively on our daily website,

The conversion from print to digital only is necessary due to major loss of advertising revenue during the COVID-19 emergency on top of burdensome print delivery costs, newsprint and ink expenses, and the production outlay required to run the presses.

We thank our Wayne County Outlook subscribers and advertisers for their support over the years, and ask that you continue to support the community’s local news and sports reports online.

If you have questions about the change to digital only, please contact me, Bill Atkinson, at

Thank you, and stay safe and stay strong.
