The Nashville Graphic serves Nash County's county Seat, Nashville plus surrounding areas such as Spring Hope, Red Oak, Castalia, Momeyer and even some of the more eastern and southern end of the county.
The newspaper's content is focused on local news including local government, local schools, the communities and the people who call this rapidly growing area home.
Nashville is 43 miles northeast of the state's capital, Raleigh and less than 10 minutes from Rocky Mount.
The 125-year old Graphic is a modern newspaper with color photographs in a modular layout. The weekly edition is "the source" of local news and sports for area residents.
