The Southern Scoop News was launched by Brittney Lofthouse in June 2020 during the height of the pandemic. With information around COVID19 changing so rapidly, the news desert that is WNC left many people without access to the information they needed to be safe.
What started as a Facebook Page quickly evolved, taking on a life of its own. With a focus on all things “news” in Macon, Jackson, and Swain Counties, the Southern Scoop News strives to produce quality, daily, content for the communities we serve. While Brittney Lofthouse has transitioned to a new career, the Southern Scoop News continues to operate under the same mission she first started… to be YOUR source of local news.
