Meet our April Member of the Month
David Brown, Publisher at the Cherokee Scout
Say hello to our April Cherokee County Chamber member David Brown!
David is the publisher for Cherokee county's community newspaper, the Cherokee Scout, along with the Andrews Journal. In addition, he also serves as the regional publisher for several surrounding area newspapers and publications, including Graham county, Blue Ridge, and Hayesville.
The Cherokee Scout has been in support of the Chamber since its inception, and has been a foundational building block for Cherokee county as a whole. The Scout was first published in 1889 and is the longest running business in Cherokee county. The overall purpose of the Scout as a community newspaper is to serve as a resource, helping promote and grow Cherokee county's culture and businesses.
David moved to Murphy in 2003 to begin working with the Scout from Florence, Alabama, where he worked as the executive editor for the TimesDaily. An organization called Community Newspapers Inc. became involved with the Scout and, when David heard the news, he set his sights on relocating to our wonderful area!
David lived in Murphy for a brief time several years ago when his family moved here while he was in 11th grade. He attended Murphy High School and has lived in several other areas since then, but has always thought that "Cherokee county felt like home."
David is also a musician and has been playing drums for the praise band at Mountainview Community Church for the past 10 years.
When asked what his favorite thing about Cherokee county was, he replied, "No matter where you're coming from, Cherokee county represents the freedom to live where you want to live, be who you want to be...it's a place where you can get your own piece of the American Dream." This area provides ample opportunity to look around and say, "Just because it's not been done before, doesn't mean it can't be done."
