The Tribune Papers was founded in 1997, initially with the Asheville Tribune. The Hendersonville Tribune, The Weaverville Tribune, and The Leicester Leader followed shortly thereafter.
In 2020, the four weeklies merged into what is currently the Tribune Papers. The community weeklies serve Buncombe and Henderson counties and are papers of Legal Record. The Tribune offers an independent voice for the communities of Hendersonville, Asheville, Black Mountain, Weaverville, Marshall, and Leicester, NC. We invite letters to the editor, as well as guest columnists.
