After listening and responding to the ever-changing media needs of our readers, we’ve redesigned the Post and Courier to put our audience first.
In 2020, the Post and Courier announced a significant investment in equipment and the future of media in South Carolina with the purchase of a 2008 Goss Magnum Single Width Press. That investment is now coming to fruition, as the presses became fully operational on Sunday, December 18, 2022.
“This is truly a historical moment for media in South Carolina,” said Pamela J Browning, President and Publisher, Newspaper Division. “We remain committed to continuously developing our capabilities and investing in quality journalism. The new presses position us to continue printing a quality newspaper well into the future with all the content our readers enjoy in a more vibrant and engaging design.”
