The Cecil Whig is a local newspaper that covers Cecil County, Maryland, daily online and publishes three days a week. It is the only publication in the county to print multiple days a week.
The paper was founded on Aug. 7, 1841, by Palmer Chamberlain Ricketts to circulate the Whig political party beliefs.
In September 1960, the Whig moved into its current location in Elkton at 601 N. Bridge St.
The Cecil Whig is one of the country's oldest newspapers, and is the oldest newspaper on Maryland’s Eastern Shore still publishing under its original name.
In 2014, Adams Publishing Group Media LLC acquired 34 papers, including the Whig.
Jacob Owens has served as the managing news editor of the Cecil Whig newspaper since 2012, while Maria Foglio has served as advertising manager since 2013 and general manager since 2015.
