Lawrence, Indiana is a small suburb located on the east side of Indiana state capital Indianapolis. The town is virtually a part of the Circle City; it’s only a few minutes away from downtown Indianapolis. Since Lawrence is so close to Indy, it benefits from easy accessibility to all of Indianapolis media. Residents of Lawrence can get the Indianapolis Star, the Indianapolis Recorder, or the Indianapolis Business Journal delivered right to their doorstep, Indianapolis television stations like Channel 13 WTHR, Channel 59 WXIN, and Channel 6 WRTV beamed straight into their living rooms, and Indianapolis radio stations like X103.3 FM and WBDG 90.9 FM on their car stereos with little to no static. Lawrence media is relatively non-existent.
Because of its proximity to Indianapolis, the town of Lawrence doesn’t really need any media outlets of its own. The town is made up of a great Lawrence parks system, a loose constellation of Lawrence businesses that make up downtown Lawrence, and several accomplished Lawrence schools. Lawrence news is generally overshadowed by what’s going on in the greater Indianapolis area and the United States; what local news there is can be found in the Indianapolis Star or in any other Indianapolis newspaper. Even Lawrence sports news, like scores from Lawrence Central High School games, can be found at Indianapolis news outlets. Lawrence media is synonymous with Indianapolis media; the town is too small to have any local news of its own.
