OXFORD — On Oct. 4, a new weekly newspaper, The Oxford Enterprise, arrived on doorsteps and newsstands in Oxford and Lafayette County. Some 10,000 copies were distributed.
The Sunday weekly newspaper was launched by publisher Scott Coopwood. Coopwood is the owner and founder of Delta Business Journal and Delta Magazine. Earlier this year, Coopwood launched The Cleveland Current, a Sunday weekly for Cleveland and Bolivar County.
“We are excited about our company launching another newspaper,” said Coopwood. “The Oxford Enterprise will be positioned as a pro-community newspaper for Oxford and Lafayette County. However, we’ll also be fearless in tackling the news that is relevant to the community.”
With a mix of features, news and editorials, The Oxford Enterprise tailors content unique to the Oxford community. In addition to local news, each issue contains profiles and features in designated sections such as Lifestyles, Arts and Entertainment, Business and Sports, as well as a University section, devoted solely to campus news, and an Outdoors section, for enthusiasts of outdoor activities.
