Your Home. Your News.
The Eastern Wake News is the hometown paper for Knightdale, Wendell and Zebulon. It publishes on Wednesdays and Sundays.
The staff is dedicated to creating an informative, vital and independent newspaper that mirrors the people, values and concerns of its growing communities. Our product reflects how much we care about our readers, our customers, our employees and the hometowns in which we live.
Based in Zebulon, the EWN team is active in many community services including the Rotary Clubs of Wendell and Zebulon, the Business/Education Alliance and the chambers of commerce.
The Eastern Wake News began publishing in 2003 as the consolidation of three newspapers: the former Knightdale Times, Wendell Clarion and Zebulon Record. All three were collectively known in even earlier times as Gold Leaf Publishers, which began serving eastern Wake County in 1911.
The Eastern Wake News is distributed with The News & Observers to home-delivery subscribers in its coverage area and as a free, standalone community newspaper with advertising inserts to additional single-family homes.
