Who we are
The Arundel Voice has proudly served communities in West County since May of 2012. Our talented staff is committed to supporting and recognizing the positive endeavors of the local community. We take pride in accurately covering the local events and activities of our youth, schools, sports, arts, neighborhoods, businesses, public officials and community organizations. We are committed to reflecting the goodness of our area and citizens.
The Arundel Voice is the sister publication of the Severna Park Voice. Originally called the Severna Park Village Voice when it was founded in 1981, it was published and produced by Margueritte L. Mills, grandmother of our current publisher, Dianna Lancione. Mrs. Mills successfully kept the greater Severna Park community abreast of the latest goings-on for many years. In 1993, she was awarded the Media Advocate of the Year Award by the Greater Severna Park Chamber of Commerce and was selected Media Advocate Runner-Up by the U.S. Small Business Administration. When Mills passed away in 1996, Dianna and her husband, Lonnie, took full control of the paper and dedicated themselves to continuing the paper's legacy of positive news in the community.
Today, the Lanciones own and operate three successful, one-of-a-kind publications: the Severna Park Voice, the Pasadena Voice and the Arundel Voice. Each paper reflects the best that its respective community has to offer, whether it’s the exciting comeback victory of the local little league team or the inspiring return of a local war hero. Our papers also give local merchants and professionals the unique opportunity to reach over 74,000 of their neighbors directly in their homes and businesses.
What began as an eight-page tabloid with a distribution of 3,000 copies has now expanded into three full-fledged, 40- to 50-page monthly newspapers. The Lanciones have stayed true to Mrs. Mills’ original goal – to publish a paper that is a positive influence on the community and recognize the many uplifting people and events of Anne Arundel County.
We invite you to be a part of who we are.
