What is now known as the Times-Courier began in 1875. Originally the Ellijay Courier, the first issue was published on Wed., Sept. 1, 1875. The subscription rate was $2 per year.

In 1916 Ellijay was a mule-wagon and ox-cart town with two bitterly warring political factions and two newspapers, the Ellijay Courier and the Ellijay Times. The two political factions, called the "Simon Pures" and the "Slick Tails", roughly democrats and republicans, had been using the newspapers to voice their opposing views. With the Times-Courier's consolidation on January 1, 1916, the new owner hoped to give the news but avoid controversy, by being non-partisan.

The Times-Courier has been owned and operated by the Bunch Family since 1967. The Bunch's strive to maintain excellence in both editorial and advertising. Over the years the Times-Courier has grown to be one of the finest newspapers in north Georgia, with award winning news and sports coverage, as well as award winning advertising. With a weekly print subscription base of 6,850, and an online readership of 35,000 per month, the Times-Courier is viewed world-wide as the official news source of beautiful Gilmer County and the North Georgia mountain region.
