Carolina Gateway is no longer a free publication

The Lancaster News announced this week that their free weekly publication, Carolina Gateway, will now only be available to paid newspaper subscribers.

The significant shift in its distribution strategy is likely prompted by the need to increase revenue and to adapt to changing trends in the newspaper industry where many publications are emphasizing subscription-based models to sustain themselves financially in the digital age.

Carolina Gateway has made its mark in reporting news within the Panhandle region since its establishment in 2004. It has won General Excellence awards in 2019 and 2022 from the S.C. Press Association.

Beginning December 6th, Carolina Gateway will be folded into the Wednesday edition of The Lancaster News.
