We work tirelessly to provide the East Cooper area with quality informative reporting on local events with knowledge, perspective and compassion. We also value our advertising customers. That's why for the second year in a row, the Moultrie News has partnered with the Mount Pleasant Business Association as an example of our unwavering support for East Cooper's wavering businesses.
The Moultrie News was started in 1964 as a tabloid shopper by Carl Meynardie, who was the publisher of the Hanahan News. He ran the little paper for eight years. In 1972 the Moultrie News was bought by Charles Diggle and J.C. Long. At the time Diggle was publisher of several small papers. When Long died in 1987, Charles Diggle bought the Beach Company's interest in the Moultrie News, and the Diggle family ran the paper for 11 years before selling it to the Evening Post Industries Company. Vickey Boyd was named publisher in April 2002.
At The Moultrie News, we believe media marketing should not be difficult.
So we have created easy ways to understand it, buy it and, most importantly, be able to monitor your success.

Vickey Boyd is a country girl raised on butterbeans, sunshine and tomatoes.She grew up playing in the woods and fields with three brothers.A good day on the farm was when she came home to dinner covered in dust and dirt. A bad day was spent in the steamy tobacco fields. Hey, anybody got a plate of butterbeans, fried chicken, with sliced tomatoes and cucumbers? She'll be right over. And right after dinner she can be found around town telling everyone to "read all about it" in East Cooper's very own weekly paper!

Sully Witte is a Lowcountry girl who believes that salt water cures everything - sweat, tears and the sea. When not working, she can be found on the boat or the dock teaching her eight year old daughter Reeves about the wonders of our coastal paradise. When not playing in the pluff mud she's bee bopping around town, interviewing our illustrious mayor and council members about various town projects. If you see her with a stack of papers as tall as her torso, she's on her way to the office to sift through the ever growing number of weekly police reports which almost always crack a smile on the face of Moultrie News Police Blotter fans. Very rarely will you ever catch her without her phone stuck to her ear and a pair of stillettos on her feet. Ms. Sully Witte has mastered the art of balance - fashionably, personally and professionally.

Dustin Waters was born and raised in Macon, Ga., but spent his college years in the most happening town in the Upstate, Clinton, S.C. He's a fan of good books, bad movies, and enjoys playing music when he's not downing coffee and polishing up the latest issue. You'll most likely find him hunkered down in the Moultrie News office, tutoring cadets at The Citadel, or sifting through the stacks at local record stores.

Frankie Mansfield is an island boy who believes there are few things in life better than sports. After spending time in the Midlands and Upstate, he has returned to the same Lowcountry fields and courts he was raised on, although his equipment changed from a ball and cleats to a pen and camera. To him, the sweet sound of a ball bouncing off hardwood, or cleats clacking on the floor entering the field, is rivaled only by the waves crashing on his hometown Isle of Palms beaches. When he's not busy covering the next generation of athletes, you can find him on the boat chasing redfish or on the court working to establish his pick-up game legacy. The old adage says there's no place like home, and Frankie couldn't be happier to be back around the teams and games he loves.
