More people read the Argus Leader today than at any time in the history of the Argus Leader. The vast majority of these readers do so online, and while digital subscriptions to the Argus grew 20% in 2021 (thanks, subscribers!), the vast majority of our online readers still don’t pay anything for it.
If you’re one of those readers, here are six quick reasons for you to try becoming a subscriber.
We’re really good at what we do
Bravado? Sure. But we have the receipts to prove it. From wrongdoing investigations, holding our elected and powerful leaders to accountcovering our dynamic business community or sports in high school, Argus Leader journalists cover you like no one else.
This includes our reader-focused action investigative series, 100 Eyes. Over the years, Argus Leader’s monitoring team has followed readers’ advice and answered questions that have resulted in impactful and transformative stories. In some cases, changes in state laws began with drives.
