For over 31 years in Athens, GA, Flagpole has taken a fiercely independent, hyperlocal approach to covering politics, music, art, food and culture, in addition to providing a comprehensive events calendar. Put simply, we keep Athens informed on the who, what, when, where and why of goings-on around town.
Unlike many other newspapers, Flagpole has always been and will continue to be free, thanks largely to Athens' local business community. In exchange for their support, our partners reach more than 35,000 unique readers each week by advertising in Flagpole. (Interested in advertising? Here's how.)
Still, it's no secret that, like print publications everywhere, Flagpole faces an uncertain future. And with real journalism under siege and local media an especially endangered species, we are increasingly hearing from friends who ask, "How can I help support Flagpole?" Now, there's an easy way.
Flagpole wouldn't exist without our readers. Thanks for helping us continue to be the colorbearer of Athens!
