About Us

Magnolia State Live is Mississippi’s only statewide digital news organization fueled by local journalism and big-picture perspective. Launched in 2017 by Digital Newsmedia Partners, LLC, we strive to connect with Mississippians by giving them information they can easily access, share with others and ultimately use to better their lives and strengthen their communities.

We are powered in part by a network of Mississippi publications—The (Brookhaven) Daily Leader, The Natchez Democrat, The Oxford Eagle, The Picayune Item and the Vicksburg Post—and in part by original reporting and opinions that shed light on everything that matters to Mississippians—from news to entertainment and everything in between.

Innovating community journalism is our mission. Mississippi is our newsroom.


Magnolia State Live is located in Lafayette County at the main office of The Oxford Eagle: 4 Private Road 2050, Oxford, Mississippi, 38655. Our mailing address is P.O. Box 866; Oxford, Mississippi, 38655 and our main phone number is (662) 234-4331.


Under the direction of Digital Newsmedia President David Magee and editorial oversight of content director Alex McDaniel, Magnolia State Live features a network of contributors from our partner publications along with several freelancers who write exclusively for the site.
