Bill and Dayna Robinson purchased the Allen Advocate in 1982. The newspaper is dedicated to the citizens of Allen and surrounding community.

It is a weekly publication that contains 100% local news and features. Some of the popular columns include "One Pharmacist's View" by Wayne Bullard and "Out and About" by Linda Knighten. Special feature stories by Randa Phillips and LeeAnn Wells of Allen are also very popular. We always encourage readers to share stories, pictures and comments.

Dianna Brannan is the Editor and Cindy Davis is the Office Manager. Both are longtime employees and are very active in the community.

From the award-winning photography, to the colorful commentaries by local columnists, the Allen Advocate is a unique and enjoyable look at life in rural Oklahoma.
