Join Our Team

If you’ve got a news tip or an idea for an article – or if you’d like to know how you can help to hold your government accountable – get in touch with us.

We’ve published many citizen reporters – ordinary South Carolinians who care enough about their state and its government to attend public meetings and put tough questions to elected officials.

We also like to keep the citizen’s voice in the mix, and on Tuesdays we frequently reprint your stories (anonymously, the storyteller prefers). So if you’ve got a story about governmental power run amok – bullying politicians, official waste, abusive authorities – let us hear about it.

Call us at (803) 254-4411, or email us at
