Description:
The Greenville News is a daily morning newspaper published in Greenville, South Carolina. Along with The State in Columbia and Charleston's Post and Courier, it is one of the three largest papers in South Carolina.

History

The Greenville News started off as a four-page publication in 1874 by A.M. Speights. For a one-year subscription, it was eight dollars. After five different owners and many editors, the Peace family bought the paper in 1919 from Ellison Adger Smyth, around the same time that Greenville was becoming known as “The Textile Center of the South.” The Peace family acquired the evening paper The Piedmont in 1927. In 1965 both papers helped to form Multimedia Inc. Then in 1995, the smaller afternoon paper and the larger morning paper merged to become The News-Piedmont. In December 1995 Gannett purchased Multimedia, changing the newspaper name back to The Greenville News. Today The News prints over 100,000 newspapers a day.

Publications

Besides The Greenville News itself, the company also publishes a newspaper/magazine called Link. It features local entertainment, news, photos, and reviews. It is a free publication and is available at more than 1,100 locations in Anderson, Greenville, Pickens and Spartanburg counties.
