The Herald-Mail is the Tri-State Area's premier newspaper serving the cities of Hagerstown, Maryland, Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, and Martinsburg, West Virginia and surrounding counties of Washington in Maryland, Franklin and Fulton in Pennsylvania, and Berkeley, Jefferson, and Morgan in West Virginia.



The Morning Herald was the first daily newspaper in Hagerstown, beginning publication in 1873. The Mail began in 1828 but converted to a daily paper, The Daily Mail, in 1890. The two newspapers merged in 1920 and were purchased by Schurz Communications in 1960. The Herald-Mail offered them as two weekday newspapers: in the morning, the The Morning Herald and in the afternoon, The Daily Mail newspaper. On 01 October 2007, the newspaper company combined the two weekday papers into one morning paper, The Herald-Mail. This move follows a national trend of print paper consolidation to better compete with the growing popularity of news resources of the World Wide Web. The Weekend Edition has been and continues to be offered on Saturday and Sunday as a single morning edition also called The Herald-Mail.


Average readership consists of 70,400 adults daily and 79,100 adults for Sunday. 20% of the readership is from readers in Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

The newspaper has a daily circulation of 31,957 and Sunday circulation of 36,778. The Herald-Mail website registers 3.4 million page-views monthly, with an average of 239,533 unique visitors per month.[1]


The Herald-Mail has been owned by Schurz Communications since 1960 and functions as the second largest newspaper by circulation in the company. Schurz Communications also owns the area's cable company, Antietam Cable.[2] The headquarters and printing press for the newspaper is on 100 Summit Avenue in downtown Hagerstown.
