The State

On Feb. 18, 1891, the first issue of a new newspaper with a bold name rolled off the presses in South Carolina’s capital city. A new era of S.C. journalism was born that day as the first 3,000 copies of The State newspaper rolled off the two-revolution press. For much of the time since, The State has been the daily newspaper of South Carolina with bureaus across the state offering an unmatched level of statewide and local coverage for South Carolina’s communities.
