Today’s Wapakoneta is a far cry from the stereotypical small city in America. Even though its reputation as a shipping depot helped establish the town in the last two centuries, information technologies and aerospace have pushed the town into the future. Clean streets, great schools, and comfortable neighborhoods round out the picture of this sleepy hamlet.
Since 1905, the town’s Wapakoneta Daily News has been chronicling the lives of the residents in the area. The paper publishes stories related to local stories and business, in addition to sports and entertainment. The paper has a daily circulation, every day except Sunday, and subscribers can visit the paper online at wapadailynews.com.
While the industry would be a part of the town’s landscape in the 1800s, it would not be until early 1900 that media would establish itself. Before the paper became Wapakoneta Daily News, it would simply be called The Daily News until 1914. The paper would then change its name to its current one. One source reports the paper had intermittent interruptions, but for the most part, the newspaper existed for most of the 20th century into the millennia. Currently, the paper reports on Wapakoneta events, news, and business, among other topics.
