Known for the spring that was once treasured by Native American tribes only a few centuries ago, Big Spring, Texas sits nestled between Midland and Abilene, to the west and east respectively, and is north of San Angelo and south of Lubbock. As it progressed, the oil industry contributed to the growth of the town’s economy. In recent times, Big Spring has enjoyed the spotlight as a place for Hollywood filming and for its growing energy industry.
Big Spring Herald has documented all of the events that have come to characterize this town. As a local news source, the paper reports on sports, community events, and important information. The paper is published every weekday afternoon and on Sundays, and for those who cannot get a hard copy, they can catch up on what is going on in Big Spring by going to bigspringherald.com.
The paper originally started as weekly in 1904 when Tom Jordan and W.G. Hayden launched it. By 1928, the paper evolved to become a daily, and then it was purchased in 1929 by Harte-Hanks Newspapers. The paper continued to publish off and on until 1977 and then the paper went off the grid.
It is not clear whether the paper folded in the late seventies and was purchased by another company, but the next time the paper shows up is in 2001 when Community Newspaper Holding put the Herald up for sale. Two years later, Horizon Publications (HPC of Texas) purchased the paper. Today, residents and visitors, alike, can catch up on local news, politics and events by picking up the daily paper.
