The Tri-State Defender (TSD) has been serving the Mid-South community for 72 years as the premiere news source for the African-American community. As we close out 2023, we want you to know that it has been a pleasure to produce a weekly publication that you depend on to deliver news that is important to you.

Our loyal readers have been able to subscribe to or pick-up TSD at many locations around the city of Memphis. It has been an honor to provide this information source to our valued readers.

Beginning in January 2024, The Tri-State Defender will be a daily digital media organization producing content for www.tsdmemphis.com, the TSD Daily Digital and The Tri-State Defender social media platforms.

TSD will produce one print newspaper at the end of each month. For those current print weekly subscribers, you will be provided access to premium articles on the new website at no additional cost to you.

For new subscribers, our rate for online and print subscription will increase to $60 annually or $5 monthly. With the increase in expenses for new staff and continued operations, it is imperative that we adjust our subscription cost at this time.
