We want to bring your stories to life

Johnston Now was born in Four Oaks, the brainchild of Randy and Shanna Capps. After decades in the media industry, our family felt that it was time to tell the more positive stories of our community.

Because our life is here

We started by launching the Four Oaks Journal in May 2015 and expanded countywide in December 2016 with Johnston Now.

We live here. We shop here. Our son goes to school here. We believe in supporting our local community, and we are humbled and grateful to tell the encouraging stories that happen here.

Johnston Now is a publication of Shandy Communications, LLC.
