Starkville has definitely transformed itself since its pre-historic roots some 2100 years ago. Long past the time when the KKK’s presence set the tone and tempo of racial relations, today, the town finds itself home to Mississippi State University and the thriving arts and cultural Cotton District. Hardly a stereotype of the South, Starkville residents come from a diverse array of religions, political leanings, and world perspectives.

The Starkville Daily News is a daily publication that provides subscribers with international, national, and local news, sports news, and a little bit of local color. The paper can also be accessed online at starkvilledailynews.com where they can view both video and printed articles.
Before it became the Starkville Daily News, the paper would be rooted in a weekly started by John McCormick. Launched as the East Mississippi Times in 1875, the paper would one of a few in the area. This paper would be sold at least two times before being combined with the Starkville News sometime in the 1920s.
Again, the paper would survive, even though ownership of the paper would change hands frequently until 1960. By 1960, the paper was purchased by Henry Harris and had a daily circulation. At this time, the paper became the Starkville Daily News. Currently, the paper dishes up interesting stories on events, political news, and happenings in the area.
