Mississippi Today

Founded in 2016 as a statehouse watchdog, Mississippi Today’s roots in Capitol coverage have grown to encompass a myriad of beats beyond politics and policy, including education, public health, justice, environment, equity, and, yes, sports. Mississippi Today is now one of the largest newsrooms in Mississippi, proving that free, nonpartisan news is the antidote to apathy and an essential key to government accountability.

Led by the state’s top journalists, marketers and business minds, Mississippi Today is recognized nationally by the likes of the Institute for Nonprofit News, American Journalism Project, Knight Media Fund and the Online News Association as a leader in public service journalism and newsroom innovation.

Mississippi Today is the only fully staffed, member-supported, digital-first, nonprofit, nonpartisan newsroom serving Mississippi and meeting the information needs of communities across the state.
