Our Story

The Chronicle weekly newspaper, based in Glens Falls, N.Y., was launched in 1980 by Mark Frost on a $1,700 investment. Though it took nine years to finally turn a profit, The Chronicle thrives today, more than a third of a century later, with a staff of 19 plus a Thursday delivery crew.

The Chronicle circulates in northern New York’s greater Glens Falls-Lake George region, encompassing Warren, Washington and northern Saratoga Counties.

The Chronicle is available free at hundreds of locations and by paid subscription. Weekly circulation ranges from 27,000 to 30,000. We also publish magazines like Adirondack Family and Summer Dining, and we facilitate community events, whether it be our own annual Glens Falls Chronicle Book Fair or our being the original sponsor of the Adirondack Theatre Festival and of Glens Falls Kiwanis Club’s Taste of the North Country.

The Chronicle succeeds because it’s embraced by a broad, deep, devoted readership and advertising base, built on nearly 36 years of honest, respectful, consistent commitment to delivering the goods.

Founder Mark Frost remains The Chronicle’s publisher and editor. Three other Chroniclers from year-one continue to have an involvement — David Cederstrom, Meredith French and Teresa Hackett. Other staff members whose tenure at The Chronicle goes back more than two decades include Sandra Hutchinson, Laurie Clothier, Valerie Erceg and Cathy DeDe. Staff with more than a decade of commitment to The Chronicle include Gina Boyce, Ed Beecher, Kate Schoneveld, Gordon Woodworth and Larry Farenell.

From its shoestring start to its ongoing success now, The Chronicle’s commitment has stayed the same — excellence in our products, progress for northern New York.
