At The Welch News, Larry Paul works on negatives for the printed newspaper page. The paper, which originally started in 1927, was saved a year ago by local reporter, now publisher, Missy Nester. @catchlight.io @ourdemocracy @insidenatgeo #thewelchnews

The Welch News publisher Missy Nester looks over Wednesday’s paper on the one year anniversary of saving it. Nester is from Welch and was a reporter at the paper for many years. “It’s a labor of love,” she said, while tearing up. “I’m proud of all of us, making it one year.” @insidenatgeo @ourdemocracy @catchlight.io #thewelchnews

West Virginia | The staff of The Welch News walk to the only bar in town for a beer after work. Welch was once a booming, bustling coal-mining town with a busy daily newspaper. Those left in the town are struggling to keep the young people from moving away....amazingly, the reporters in the newsroom are all in their 20s. @ourdemocracy @catchlight.io @insidenatgeo #thewelchnews

The Welch News, fresh off the press. Current circulation of around 3,000. Most of this remote mountain community heavily relies on the paper. @insidenatgeo @ourdemocracy @catchlight.io #welchnews

Welch, WV | We are up late with the editor and publisher of The Welch News (formerly the Welch Daily News) which almost folded a year ago. Stay tuned for more on how a staff of seven (including circulation, printers, advertising, reporters and publisher) is keeping the paper alive for a community that has little internet or cell reception in the heart of Appalachia. @insidenatgeo #ourdemocracy #thewelchnews @catchlight.io
