New Port Magazine Launched

The Port of Charleston’s award-winning monthly publication has undergone a major facelift – Port News magazine has become PortCharleston.

The magazine has been renamed PortCharleston in an effort to communicate and brand the Port in a meaningful way for its clients. PortCharleston is currently distributed to more than 9,000 subscribers in 50 countries around the world.

The publication will continue to deliver valuable information as well as entertaining profiles and features, with additional content provided in its Web version, PortCharleston Onlinehttp://www.scspa.com/portcharleston/default_portnews.asp.

The editorial focus in both print and online versions will include information and features from the local business community and the industry at large.

Over 54 years, Port News won numerous awards of excellence from the American Association of Port Authorities and several ADDY awards from the local Advertising Federation.

As part of the redesign, former editor Marion Bull moves to the publisher position and Shelia Watson takes over as editor. Marvin Preston remains in charge of photography and digital imaging.

For editorial content, advertising or comments, please contact Shelia Watson at 843-577-8161 or swatson@scspa.com.
