About Us

Smith Communications, Inc. is a publishing company headquartered in Eatonton, Ga., with offices at Lake Oconee and in Madison.

The Smith Family has published The Eatonton Messenger since 1958, but the paper dates back to 1860.

A. Mark Smith, Sr., CEO, also started the Lake Oconee News several years ago with distribution in Greene, Morgan, Putnam and Hancock counties. Beginning in Fall of 2010, the Lake Oconee News began distribution in Oconee county as well.

We publish four magazines: Lakelife, Healthy Living, and Homefinder (the No. 1 real estate magazine on the lake), and the women’s magazine, Flair, which has been well received and about which we are very excited.

Altogether, our printed publications reach more than 45,000 readers each week.

Our mission is to serve the local community by providing timely information about the news and events that affect us locally.

We would like the opportunity to “spread the word” about your business or service and, of course, the happenings here and beyond county lines.

If we can be of service to you, please do not hesitate to contact us at 706-485-3501. We look forward to hearing from you.
