Our Heritage:

 

The first issue of Tidbits dates back to 1987 when it was published in Helena, Montana, as a twice-weekly paper, then later as a weekly. In 1993, the enterprise was purchased by an entrepreneur named Dave Steele, who moved Tidbits to Billings where it continued as a weekly paper. About a year later, a visitor passing through Billings picked up a copy, and inquired if he might publish a Tidbits paper in his hometown back in Tennessee. As a result, the first licensed Tidbits operation came into being. Corporate ownership changed hands again in 2002, and the company was relocated to Montgomery, Alabama. Today weekly editions of Tidbits can be found in over 250 counties in 33 states all across the United States and Canada. Nationally, the combined weekly readership of Tidbits is approximately 5,000,000 and growing.

 

The first issue of Tidbits of Linn County was published on February 6th, 2006.

 

The first issue of Tidbits of Johnson County was published on  January 12th, 2012. Our current circulation gives us over 23,000 weekly readers.
