About Us

The DeKalb County Dispatch has been delivering news to DeKalb County since we opened in January 2016. Our goal is to provide both superior news coverage and public service information at no cost to the casual reader.

Publisher, R Jay Driskill has over 22 years of experience in the newspaper business and is passionate about exceeding your expectations.

“Having grown up in DeKalb County, and spending my career in the Newspaper business, it has always been my dream to come home and do what I do in DeKalb County.” –R Jay Driskill, Publisher


We believe DeKalb County is ready for a move to the digital age, and we want to be the voice of that age.

We also believe that the news you need should be free, and we intend to maintain that service.

We love our readers and welcome your feedback and suggestions. Use our Contact Us page to tell us what we’re doing right or what we can improve on.
