Founded by Timothy Knight of Middleburgh in 2013, the Schoharie News serves as the community's only exclusively online news outlet. In September of 2014, Mr. Knight sold it to Robert Panico, also of Middleburgh, who ran the internet paper for five months.
Mr. Knight, who worked as a freelance reporter for the Mountain Eagle from July 2014 to February 2015, returned as editor and owner of the Schoharie News on Tuesday, February 24th, replacing Mr. Panico as the sole proprietor.
On September 16, 2016, Matthew Avitabile from Middleburgh purchased the publication. He moved the office to Main Street Schoharie and hopes to be able to highlight many issues that Schoharie County faces.
