News Review

The News-Review, delivering news to Keokuk County since 1860, continues in that tradition. We endeavor to faithfully transmit the news as we ourselves receive it. The paper was established in 1960 after the consolidation of the Keokuk County News and the Sigourney Review by then publisher Don Adams. He successfully operated the thriving publication until his retirement. Former publisher Ken Chaney and his wife, Zelda, purchased the paper on July 1, 1989 and after twenty years of ownership, sold the newspaper to Mid-America Publishing Corporation in January of 2008.

  Mid-America was started in 1962 by the Archie family of Shenandoah. It has long owned, operated and printed newspapers throughout the state.

  Keota Eagle 

Offering small-town hospitality and a real sense of community, Keota got its start in 1873 as a stop on the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad line. With a population of 1,025, Keota is situated on the eastern county line of Keokuk and Washington counties. Surrounded with rich Iowa farm ground, Keota is a great place to unwind and kick up your feet.

The Keota Eagle was established in 1875 by George C. Miller and has been serving the community of Keota, Iowa ever since. The newspaper is a weekly publication printed each Wednesday and is owned by Mid-America Publishing Corporation. Charlie Comfort is the current editor, covering community news and events, Keota Community School District news as well as county wide news and events. Jackson Kane covers sports in the area. In early 2015, The Keota Eagle was recognized as an Iowa Newspaper Association Award Winning Newspaper for Best Newspaper Website and Best Use of Social Media.
