About Us

The Marysville Advocate is here for you.

Established in 1885, the Advocate has been among the state's best newspapers, annually awarded for its accomplished writing, photography, editorials and advertising. Its paid circulation reaches more than 4,200 subscribers and it continues as a state leader of community newspapers. No other publication matches our circulation reach across Marshall County and throughout the Marysville trade area, which includes neighboring counties.

The Advocate is a news-oriented publication that puts readers first. Our reporters cover schools, area sports, churches, businesses, city and county government and public meetings. We cover agriculture, including the county fair, local farming and the weather. We cover family life from birth to death.

We editorialize to promote county betterment and have an active letters forum. Our staff has promoted and worked in Habitat for Humanity, historic preservation, business and industrial development and many service organizations. We're active in Marysville Main Street, the Marysville Chamber of Commerce and community development.
