The Sandusky Register traces its roots to the "The Clarion," a newspaper first published in Sandusky in 1822. The newspaper was founded and grounded in American newspaper traditions started by Benjamin Franklin and others in the 1730s. It also was part of the penny press movement spurred by Horace Greeley and others beginning in the 1830s, as publishing technologies advanced and newspapers began to flourish across the country.
Purchased in 1869 by Isaac Foster Mack, a union soldier and Civil War veteran, the Register remains under the ownership of his descendants to this day, and remains committed to gathering and delivering news to your doorstep every single day. The Register purchased the Sandusky Star-Journal newspaper and its building at Jackson and Market streets in 1929, which has been headquarters to our growing newspaper company ever since.
The owners, executives, managers and employees of the Register believe it's our responsibility to serve our readers, customers, advertisers, businesses and industry by informing, questioning and praising what affects us all, every day. It is an important element to the vitality and progress of our greater community in the five counties we serve. Our commitment will not waiver and we remain devoted to that honorable task, daily, today and into the future.
The Register will continue to deliver your printed newspaper to your doorstep every single day.
Advancing technologies today allow us to deliver the news the way you want it delivered from your "inbox" in a daily email, with our e-edition replica of our daily newspaper on your home computer, cell phone or iPad, and text news alerts to your phone. We also continue to provide our free news service at sanduskyregister.com.
We're excited by these new opportunities and appreciate our readers who are committed to staying informed and contributing to that important job. Be assured, our commitment to deliver the news remains our No. 1 objective, as it has been for nearly 200 years. That won't change.
