About Us

Still free. Still local.

Cola Daily is owned and operated by Midlands Media Group.

Cola Daily (www.coladaily.comstrives to be a hyperlocal daily publication covering news and events in Richland and Lexington counties with accuracy and integrity and without bias. But what does that mean?

In short, it means we are your newspaper. We cover the news and tell the stories that matter to you. We are a reflection of the community — our community. We present just the facts; no editorials or columns here. And we care about what you have to say. We want people to talk about our stories, with us and with each other.

We are your free, online-only local newspaper.
