Founded by Timothy Knight of Middleburgh in 2013, the Schoharie News served as the community's only exclusively online news outlet from 2013-2016. 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 purchased the Mountain Eagle from Columbia-Greene Media and brought it to print in October 2016. He then purchased the Mountain Eagle in January 2017, combining the two publications. Now combined, the Mountain Eagle and Schoharie News serves Schoharie, Delaware, and Greene Counties. The publication is now published through a partnership by him, Patrick Billings, and Robert Panico under Upstate Weekly News LLC.

The current Mountain Eagle includes publications in one newspaper-- the Mountain Eagle, the Schoharie News, the Windham Weekly, the Catskills Chronicle, and the Tri-County News section.
