About Us

The History:
The Berkshire Record was first published by Limestone Enterprises in the summer of 1989 to serve the residents and non-residents of Southern Berkshire County with objective local weekly news, arts and entertainment, local sports and other pertinent area information. Over the last 25 plus years, the Record has won many statewide awards for journalism, news, photos, illustrations, humor, sports and first amendment writing. And as the paper has continued to grow in circulation and popularity, the Record is the trusted voice of the communities that make up Southern Berkshire County.

The Berkshire Record today:
Covering several communities including Great Barrington, North and South Egremont, Lee, Lenox, Stockbridge, Sheffield, New Marlborough, West Stockbridge, Otis, Monterey, Richmond, Becket, Richmond, Sandisfield, Mount Washington and Alford, the Record continues to grow in popularity and circulation. Focused on the local community as print-centric news organization, the Berkshire Record is the oldest continually published weekly newspaper in South County. The Record also publishes a tri-annual magazine called The Berkshire Record Magazine which publishes a Best issue as well as two very popular Summer Guides. The Record also publishes another weekly newspaper, The Berkshire Courier, which serves Central Berkshire County. In addition, the Record also publishes a monthly alternative newspaper called The Berkshire View which serves the entire Berkshire County market.

The Record’s Website:
The Record’s website features partial stories, twitter feeds from the news and sports departments as well as  a low resolution image of that week’s front page. Why? Simple -The Berkshire Record, as a print-centrist news organization, feels that their content is too valuable to give away on the internet and doing so would diminish the value of the hard work we put into our product every week. To get South County’s premier and only weekly newspaper, pick up the Record locally at local vendors, vending machines or you can subscribe today for convenient home or office delivery. The Record also makes a great gift – it’s the perfect gift that keeps on giving all year long.
