Quorum is a home for independent investigative journalism. We throw in what we can here and there on Fridays to allow new voices in the Arts and Culture community to be heard, but we butter our bread on local investigative journalism and always will.
It is supported completely by our advertisers and you, subscribers. In other words, regular people and businesses who care, truly care, to see the business of watchdog, public-service journalism performed in Columbia and beyond
As the work of journalism never stops needing to be done, as the public never stops needing to be informed and as public officials and agencies engaging in fraud, waste, abuse and corruption never stop needing to be exposed, Quorum was launched on July 12, 2016, to fill that ever-widening gap.
If you believe this a worthy cause, please subscribe and encourage others to do the same; we also encourage gift subscriptions.
If you have tips, please send them directly to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or mail them to Quorum, Attn: Ron Aiken, P.O. Box 549, Blythewood, SC 29016.
