History

The Chattanooga News, also known as the Chattanooga Weekly News, was printed every Thursday.

The paper contained four pages with six columns, and the paper’s size was 15 by 22 inches, and the subscription cost $1.00 for a year-long subscription.

A.J. Mangan edited and published the Chattanooga News at the beginning of the 1900s. There is no definitive date for when he left the paper, but by 1907 J. C. Bayne became the editor and publisher.

Under Bayne’s tenure, the weekly followed the Republican Party. The inner pages were ready-prints, and all issues contained two columns on page one that was headed “Chattanooga the Big Pasture Town.” In 1907 the paper’s pages increased to eight and measured at 11 by 16 inches.
