Winston Salem’s oldest community newspaper will have a new address.  

That’s right, as of Oct. 1, The Chronicle will move from its current location, downtown Winston Salem on Liberty Street, to a building on Fifth Street, off Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.  

Now in its 43rd year of publication, The Chronicle has been a staple in the African-American community of Winston Salem and Forsyth County.  In addition, it continues to sponsor many events to promote knowledge and unity to its readers and supporters.  

The Chronicle’s new home will be the old Bank of America building near the intersection of Fifth Street and MLK Jr. Drive.  The move has been in the works since The Chronicle Media Group, LLC, purchased the assets of the Winston-Salem Chronicle Publishing Co., including the newspaper, this past April.  The Liberty Street address has been home to The Chronicle for almost 33 years, since the move from Trade Street at the inception of the paper.  

James Taylor, The Chronicle’s publisher, feels the move is a step toward continuing the longevity and commitment the paper has provided within the Winston-Salem and African-American communities.

“For over 40 years, The Chronicle has been the city’s most well-respected source for community news. We are very excited about increasing our visibility in the community that we serve, by moving our office to the east end of downtown Winston-Salem. The Chronicle’s new office will not only repurpose a facility and a business that left our community, it will create jobs and serve as an anchor for the responsible redevelopment of the MLK Corridor,” Taylor said.  

The address is the only change.  Phone numbers, extensions and other contact information will remain the same.  The Chronicle’s new physical address will be 1300 E. Fifth St., Winston Salem NC 27101.
