The Ironton Tribune started publication on Aug. 1, 1928, when the Irontonian and the Ironton Register were merged into one publication. The Register was founded in 1850 and the Irontonian in 1874. The Ironton Tribune moved from Railroad St. in downtown Ironton to its current location at 2903 S. Fifth St. in 1974.

The Ironton Tribune, owned and operated by Ironton Publications, Inc. strives to be the number one source for news, sports and advertising in all of Lawrence County, Ohio, and the surrounding communities of Ashland, Ky., and Huntington, W.Va.
