Support Columbus Underground

Columbus Underground is a fully independent, locally-owned news publisher that has been serving Columbus, Ohio since 2001. Our award-winning journalists cover a wide range of important local topics — including civics, urban development, small business news, entertainment and events — all for free for our readers.

We have always believed in the value of having a "free to all" access model with no barriers to entry, because news is something that people should be able to access, regardless of ability to pay. No paywalls. No subscriptions.
