Community Newspaper - owned by Bardwellink, LLC/Jim and Suzanne Bardwell. Newspaper is the oldest continuous business in Gladewater, founded in 1904.
According to Texas Hostorical Commission records, the Gladewater Mirror Newspaper has been in existence since 1849 – under one name or another. The local newspaper has provided the people of Gladewater and East Texas with news under many banners: The Gladewater Journal, The Gladewater Gazette, The Gladewater Weekly News, The Gladewater Daily Mirror, The Gladewater Daily Times-Tribune and The Gladewater Mirror.
And while the name may have changed over the past 166 years, the message has been the same – to inform and educate its readers and to hold government accountable to the taxpayers and voters.
