Why 1893?

Our name represents the merging of traditional storytelling values with modern marketing strategies. The first Tar Heel newspaper was published Feb. 23, 1893. Nearly 125 years later, the newspaper is still committed to journalism education, service through community journalism and marketing local businesses and organizations to the community.

1893 combines two qualities the community has long expected from The Daily Tar Heel: Excellent storytelling and the ability to connect businesses and organizations with customers.

Our storytellers come from journalism, content marketing and strategic communication backgrounds. They will determine the best way to communicate your story and solve your marketing problems. Options might include a longform article for your own website, an entertaining social video or photo coverage of your events.

1893 is a student-powered agency, with quality editing and oversight to ensure excellence.
