The Truman Tribune was founded in December of 1899, with the first edition rolling out in January, 1900.
Meet the Meyers
The Truman Tribune is currently owned and run by Neal and Nikki Meyer, who bought the paper in December of 2012. In 2015 we also purchased the Maple River Messenger. We are now a family of six - having added a daughter and two more sons to our family since moving to Truman. Both our business and our family keep us on the move at all times. Our hands are full, but so are our hearts, and we are blessed to have great staffs who help make it all happen.
What We Stand For
For us, community is number one. We believe in hometowns with both roots and a future. We believe that everyday we vote by the choices we make. We vote by where we spend our time and our money. We vote by what we give our attention to. We vote by the company we keep and the standards we uphold. As a family and as a business, we try and cast our vote for all things local, for small business, for education, for family, for health, and for our faith. We thank you for taking the time to get to know a little more about us, and we look forward to getting to know more about you.
