About Us

The Journal is unlike anything you've ever seen before. Sure, we maintain the integrity of a traditional newspaper, but we also present information in an innovative, colorful, easy-to-read format. Our focus never strays from the local news and views that impact the communities of Upstate South Carolina. Best described as a metropolitan community weekly (easy for us to say), The Journal is published in a reader-friendly magazine format every Friday.

The weekly frequency is by design to match the needs of our busy reader, many of whom do not have time to keep up with a daily paper.

Our writers and columnists are local citizens. They have chosen the Upstate as their preferred place to work; to raise their families; and to call home. We have sought out the best and brightest staff and contributors in the region. These are people who know their community, people who know the names and places that matter to you and who are committed to delivering their very best to your home, week in and week out.

Leveraging the Journal's circulation platform, the Upstate Business Journal provides the most powerful leaders in the market with a weekly dose of current business headlines and news. Additionally, a handful of signature features are designed to engage a diverse readership base.

We also produce TOWN Magazine, the monthly city magazine for the Upstate.  TOWN focuses on living well in the Upstate and is dedicated to the arts, style, culture, and the social scene.

At Home Magazine publishes three times each year and, with 20,000 copies, enjoys the largest circulation of any local magazine in the market. This nationally recognized publication is devoted to covering trends in home design and fine living.
