The Addison Independent was founded in 1946 with the closing of the Middlebury Register. The AI has always been a family-owned independent newspaper. Current publisher/editor Angelo Lynn has been at the helm for more than 20 years.
The Addison Independent is as much a part of the local community as many of the institutions covered on the front page.
Being a community newspaper means that the AI's award-winning editorial staff covers local events in a way that's different from a large metropolitan or regional daily. The aim is to tell readers about their friends and neighbors and about events in local government, schools, sports and business that affect how readers live. The AI also provides readers everything they need to know about local entertainment and events.
The editorial staff is wholly separate from the newspaper's advertising staff, who are responsible for selling space both for display ads and classifieds.
News is printed at no charge, while advertising is bought and sold; the only way to guarantee space in the paper is through paid advertising.
In addition to the editorial and advertising staffs, the Addison Independent employs graphic designers, circulation people, receptionists, and accounting personnel - all of whom contribute to the day-to-day workings of the paper.
