The Liberian Observer Corporation (LOC), publishers of the Daily Observer newspaper, over the weekend, relocated its offices from 23 McDonald Street adjacent the Kingdom Hall in central Monrovia to a property very near another Kingdom Hall at the ELWA Junction, across from the Exclusive Super Market in Paynesville. Kingdom Hall is a place where Jehovah’s Witnesses meet and worship.
From the time the Daily Observer was established in 1981 as Liberia’s first independent daily newspaper, it operated from its birth place at 53 Broad Street, Crown Hill, Monrovia until it ceased publication due to the severity of the 14-year Liberian civil crisis. That property was owned by the Charles T.H. Dennis family.
When the paper resumed publication in 2005, this time it was relocated to 23 McDonald Street, Monrovia, a property built by the late Counselor Nete Sie Brownell, whose family graciously leased it to the LOC. It was adjacent to the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
The LOC management has expressed appreciation to its many readers, advertisers and business partners for their continuous confidence in the Daily Observer and once again urge them to contact the newspaper through 0777-472-772 and 0886-472-772 to continue the relationship and to experience where business meets opportunities.
With the newspaper are also relocated its library, the Stanton B. Peabody Memorial Library and the Observer Printing Press.
A sign is posted across the street from the Exclusive Supermarket for all to see the location of the new Observer office.
The Board of Directors and management have also expressed thanksgiving to Almighty God for giving the newspaper and the Observer Corporation their new headquarters, wholly owned by the Corporation.
