The first publication of the Intelligencer, then a four-page weekly called the Madison Intelligencer, came off the press November 13, 1862.
As Edwardsville’s oldest, continuously-operated business, the “I” has grown and prospered in a world where newspapers have evolved from hot-lead type to computer-generated pages.
The Intelligencer’s core product is the Edwardsville Intelligencer, which is published Monday through Saturday. The Intelligencer is also a proud provider of Newspapers in Education, a non-profit program that delivers newspapers and curriculum to teachers at no charge to them or the schools.
Other Intelligencer products include a weekly entertainment magazine, On the Edge of the Weekend, theintelligencer.com, and many extra publications to help serve the community.
