Charleston WV, used to be the home to 2 competing newspapers, The Daily Mail with a right leaning bias, and The Gazette, with a left leaning bias. A number of years ago, in the need to shore up finances, these two opposing newspapers, resolved to merge into the Charleston Gazette-Mail. They both kept their own editorials and opinion pages with their own viewpoints. The end result is the current paper you know see in the Kanawha Valley and that has a subscriber base spanning the state.
Other weekly papers come out as well, but the Gazette-Mail is the primary source of written news in the area. The Graffiti paper, comes out monthly and contains many article and music related items as well as classified ads.
