The Vandalia Drummer News has been the newspaper and information sourse of record for Vandalia and Butler Township since 1979.
The Vandalia Drummer News was purchased in June, 2017 by AIM Media Midwest which publishes 17 daily newspapers, 16 in Ohio and 1 in West Virginia, 15 weekly publications, and a variety of specialty publications. AIM Media Midwest focuses on local content across all forms of media including print, online and video. The Company recognizes the value and benefits that local news, information and advertising services bring to local communities and regional markets.
Prior to the Drummer’s purchase by AIM Media, the publication was part of Civitas Media. Civitas Media was formed in 2012 and brought together four media entities formerly known as Heartland Publications, Freedom Central, Impressions Media, and Ohio Community Media.
Prior to the formation of Civitas Media, the Vandalia Drummer News was part of Ohio Community Media, which emerged from the former Brown Publishing Company. Prior to that, the Drummer was part of the Bowling-Moorman Company.
