The Seven Lakes Insider is a monthly print publication dedicated to providing the residents of Seven Lakes, North Carolina with first-rate local news coverage. Our website is updated regularly with the latest stories and press releases. 

Founded in 2016 by Seven Lakes community member Janna Guerra, The Seven Lakes Insider filled a void left by the passing of Bob Hankins, editor of the widely-respected Seven Lakes Times. People looked to Guerra, one of the primary SLT reporters, to keep the legacy alive. She was still an undergraduate student at the time, but despite her young age, Guerra delivered. She continued in the role of editor and publisher until her time and attention were called elsewhere due to an illness in the family.

In 2021 The SLI was acquired by The Pilot Newspaper, a nationally acclaimed, historic publication based in nearby Southern Pines. Guerra passed the baton on to long-time publisher David Woronoff, who has committed to keeping the spirit of The Seven Lakes Insider alive and ensuring that our vibrant, lake-side community is informed and represented.
