About Us: History

I would like to take this opportunity to give you a little more information about ‘The TAB.’ ‘The TAB’ was established in September of 1985 as a free weekly newspaper. The goal was to give the community a newspaper that would cover the local news and be distributed to the entire county.

The TAB’ is the only newspaper in Huntington County where you can reach the entire county once a week.

Free distribution is our only business and not a gimmick to make a quick profit or supplement a paid circulation base. We have worked hard to maintain and increase our distribution over the years.
