The Kentucky Standard

The Kentucky Standard is the local newspaper of Bardstown, Kentucky.


The Kentucky Standard was started December 15, 1900 by Jack Wilson, a former employee of the Nelson County Record. The newspaper was sold to the Nelson County Circuit Clerk, Wallace Brown in 1901. The former owner still contributed as an editor for the paper. In 1919 Alfred S. Wathen bought enough stocks of the company to become the newspaper's publisher. In 1958 Alfred S. Wathen's children ran the newspaper. In 1979 the newspaper was bought by Scripps Howard. And finally Landmark Community Newspapers bought the newspaper in April 1987.[1]

The Kentucky Standard Today

The Kentucky Standard is today published three times a week. The newspaper also runs PLG-TV, a local cable tv channel, three websites, and a classified magazine about real estate.][1]
