Surplus Line Reporter Newspapers
The Louisiana edition of The Surplus Line Reporter was founded in 1978 by Charles Hartwell and several folks with the Louisiana Surplus Line Association.
The newspaper initially was the official journal of LSLA and held that distinction until the late 1980s when it became an independent news source for the property/casualty insurance community in the state. Shortly thereafter, the name of the publication became The Surplus Line Reporter & Insurance News.
The Texas Surplus Line Reporter & Insurance News was founded in 1983, and as the name implies, covers the property/casualty insurance business in Texas.
The two newspapers are published monthly by The Surplus Line Reporter Inc. Neither publication is affiliated with any insurance trade or industry association.
Each newspaper takes a local perspective on the insurance business, with coverage of local events and issues of particular concern to agents as they strive to serve their customers.
