    The Herald is the leading daily newspaper in the Mercer County, Pa., area. We cover the Mercer County and the Shenango Valley as well as adjacent towns in the New Wilmington/Volant area of Lawrence County, Pa., and Brookfield/Masury area of Trumbull County, Ohio. (MAP AND LIST OF TOWNS WE COVER)

    Mercer County is on the western border of Pennsylvania and includes the crossroads of Interstates 80 and 79. We are about 75 miles each south of Erie, Pa., north of Pittsburgh, Pa., and southeast of Cleveland, Ohio. We are a day's drive west of Philadelphia and New York City and a long day's drive southeast of Chicago.

    We publish mornings every day of the year except Christmas Day.
