About Us


The Falmouth Outlook is a weekly newspaper for Pendleton County, Kentucky and was founded in June of 1907 by Mr. Warren J. Shonert Sr. with only six subscribers. Today the newspaper has grown to a circulation of almost 4,000 subscribers, including our newsstand sales which reach all the way to Wilder, Alexandria, and Cold Spring to the north and Cynthiana to the south.

Although the Shonert family sold the weekly newspaper to the Delphos Herald Inc. in January of 1986, our newspaper remains the eyes and ears of Pendleton County. The Falmouth Outlook reports the births, marriages, court records, school news, church news, and other happenings making history in our county. Monthly meetings of the city and county governments are covered in the paper as well as school board news and other club and organization meetings.

The Falmouth Outlook has withstood floods, tornadoes, and other tough times since the paper's birth. The newspaper office is located at 210 Main Street in the town of Falmouth, the county seat of Pendleton. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The town of Falmouth has a population of around 2,500 and the county has a population of around 14,000. We are located approximately 38 miles south of Cincinnati on U.S. 27 and approximately 42 miles north of Lexington, Kentucky.

The Falmouth Outlook is published every Tuesday and is delivered through the mail to the homes in Pendleton County and surrounding areas. There are 4,013 printed each week. Our other publication, The Shopper's Outlook, helps to cover the entire county and adjoining areas. It is a six-column format, free paper that is also published on Tuesday and is mailed to box holders who do not subscribe to The

Falmouth Outlook in Pendleton County. There are 9,060 copies of The Shopper's Outlook printed each week. Together, our two publications have total saturation of the county.

The newspaper has produced a history books of the county called The Forks of the Licking. Copies are still available for sale to the public at a cost of $21.95 plus shipping of $3.95 per book.

Debbie Dennie is the Publisher/Editor of the newspaper and has been with the paper since December of 1988.
