About Salon

Who We Are

Salon helps you make sense of a contradictory world, leading the evolving, challenging dialogue on building a more democratic, innovative and humane future. 

What We Do

Salon has been a trusted destination for progressive journalism since 1995. We report on who’s being left behind and who’s getting ahead; we give current events context, provide rigorous analysis, and lead in-depth conversations; we engage and challenge our readers, dismantling conventional wisdom and celebrating innovation with humanity.

One of the first entirely digital major media outlets, Salon has driven the national conversation since 1995 through fearless journalism distributed across Salon.com, Salon TV, social media, news platforms, email newsletters and mobile apps. Salon’s award-winning content, including our flagship show “Salon Talks” and other Salon TV programming, reaches an audience of approximately 10 million monthly unique visitors.

Supporting our journalism directly with a monthly subscription is one way to help Salon thrive—and subscribers get the full Salon experience ad-free.

In November of 2023, fast-growing, privately-held media company Find.co acquired Salon.com from prior owners Drew Schoentrup and Chris Richmond. Salon.com thus joined Find.co’s portfolio of media assets with a continued focus on smart, informed, timely reporting and provocative opinion and critical analysis. Mr. Schoentrup is continuing to serve as CEO through April 2024 with Mr. Richmond serving in an advisory capacity through November 2024.
