Skagit Valley Herald

The Skagit Valley Herald is a family-owned daily newspaper covering Skagit County, which reaches from the Puget Sound to the Cascade Mountains.

In spring 2008, the paper converted to morning delivery after more than a century as an afternoon newspaper. In December 2008, the Skagit Valley Herald and most of its sister publications moved to a new facility on Anderson Road in Mount Vernon.

In 2009, the year of the newspaper's 125th anniversary, the Skagit Valley Herald was awarded the prestigious General Excellence award for papers of its size in a five-state region. Newspapers in Washington, Alaska, Idaho, Montana and Oregon competed in the annual Society of Professional Journalists competition. The General Excellence award for the newsroom staff was in addition to 17 other individual awards.
