The Myrtle Beach Post was launched in 2018 by veteran national newspaper reporter Audrey Hudson.
The publication and social media pages grew quickly with a loyal local readership, and our reach has since expanded across the Carolinas and eastern states.
Now retired from the news gathering business, Hudson focuses on commentary and analysis of the issues that matter most to locals — growth, government, and politics.
But we’re a beach town at heart, and readers also want to know about special events, which we post on our Facebook page.
We moderate a special Facebook community for locals only, linked here.
For residents interested in local and state Republican politics, we also Myrtle Beach Republican News HQ on Facebook linked here.
Hudson is a national award-winning journalist with decades of reporting experience.
Most notably, she was a national desk reporter for The Washington Times covering Congress, as well as the Clinton, Bush, and Obama administrations.
She is a recipient of the prestigious Sigma Delta Chi award from the Society of Professional Journalists for public service, and numerous other awards for government and investigative journalism.
After too many years of inside-the-Beltway living, she and her husband packed up the Schnauzers and moved to the banks of the Waccamaw River in 2014 to enjoy life.
Hudson is a native of Kentucky. Her family spent their summers in Myrtle Beach in the late ’70s and ’80s.
On sunny days, you can often find her on the beach in front of that old house with her toes in the sand.
