About the Antlers American

Antlers, Oklahoma would be incorporated some twenty years after the first Americans decided to settle the land that was a part of the Choctaw nation in 1887. According to town lore, the town’s interesting name was the result of antlers hanging from a tree in Antler Springs. Soon after the first two Americans settled the land, the city would support itself through the retail, cotton, and lumber industries.

The area’s news media would also establish itself by launching what might have been the precursor to today’s Antlers American. Today, the paper is the city’s voice on politics and other local and business news, sports, and entertainment. The paper is published once a week on Thursday and can be accessed in print or on the web at the antlersamerican.com.

Antlers American History

The first paper recorded in Antlers was the Antlers Democrat in the 1890s, some few years after the first American settlers moved into the area. While a few sources state that the paper began in 1895, it is not clear whether or not the Antlers Democrat was the precursor to the present paper. It would not be until the early 1900s that the beginning of today’s Antlers American would arrive on the scene.

Sometime around 1908, the paper would take on the name the Antlers News-Record and publish weekly. Again, this paper might have been the result of the consolidation of two papers—the Antlers News and the Antlers Record. The paper would continue to publish weekly under this name until 1920 when it would change its name briefly for a year and then change names again to its current moniker, the Antlers American.

While times change and events have a way of shaping the future, Antlers American still publishes its paper once a week on Thursday as it has for the last 98 years. The paper’s circulation is 3200 copies and covers both Antlers and Pushmataha County. The paper is currently owned by Horizon Publications, Inc.

The paper that covers the city between two highways has been its premier source of information for close to 100 years. Get your business in Antlers American by sending a press release. PR Distribution is partnered with Antlers American and/or with their content syndication partner(s).
