The Current is an inclusive nonprofit, independent news organization which provides in-depth watchdog journalism for Savannah and Coastal Georgia’s communities.

We believe that journalism is a public service and a key pillar of a healthy democracy by holding the powerful to account, illuminating public threats and building a better society built on trustworthy facts. Our organization works under the umbrella of the Savannah-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization Grey Matters Project. The newsroom is fully independent and supported by individual contributions and memberships, major philanthropic gifts, corporate sponsorships and events. 

Our stories are your stories

We listen. We research. We provide data-based stories on issues that affect all our local communities, regardless of demographic or socio-economic background. We ask hard questions and go behind the scenes to report important stories, without fear or favor.

We seek to be a catalyst for improving the quality of life for all Georgians through our coverage of health and education, economic development, public safety, social issues and the environment. Sign up here to receive our regular newsletters: Soundings and Coastal Georgia politics on Tuesdays, Coast Watch for environmental updates on Wednesdays, Undercurrent brings public safety discussions on Thursdays, and Sunday Solutions works to inform for your weekend dinner conversations.
