The News-Ledger was founded in 1964 by the late Julius Feher and the late Michael P. Garten. Both were West Sacramento residents. For Feher, newspaper was a lifelong love — he started his first West Sacramento newspaper while still a teenager, and operated several different newspapers to serve his city during his lifetime. His publishing career was interrupted by wartime service and other obligations. He died in 1988.
After the passing of both founders, the newspaper remained as a (rare) independent local newspaper, passing to the hands of longtime News-Ledger editors Steve Marschke and Daryl Fisher. They own it through The News-Ledger LLC. The paper continues to focus on local news for West Sacramento.
The News-Ledger is mailed each Wednesday to local subscribers ($20/year within West Sacramento) and is also available at many locations around town. You can find it in newsracks outside Nugget Market, Starbucks (Enterprise and Town Center Plaza locations) and other locations, or for sale inside Walgreen, Raley's and other stores. Subscription cost outside of West Sacramento is $25/year, for mailed delivery.
