The first newspaper of record in Hamilton County dates back to 1873. Three newspapers existed at one point, and in 1942 the two remaining Republican-Register and Aurora News were merged into the Aurora News-Register. Kurt and Paula Johnson purchased the publication from R.L. Butch Furse in 2000.

The News-Register was one of the first weekly newspapers in Nebraska to post a website in 1995, and now shares information in a variety of digital platforms including Facebook, Twitter, mobile and our e-edition, which lets readers view the enter printed product from any digital device.
