The Voice of County West for 40+ Years

The scanned image above is a front-page story from the Herscher Pilot, dated July 5, 1979, in which Robert Mau purchased the Herscher Pilot from Herscher Publishing Co. For forty years, Robert, along with his wife, Janet, who continued publication of the Herscher Pilot after Robert’s death in April, 2016, have committed to bringing “grassroots journalism” to the Kankakee County West area and its nearby towns. For the past forty years and today, the Herscher Pilot strives to be “Your Community Newspaper”.
