This fall, Camden Media Co. will launch a new magazine called The Camden Horse. The magazine, which will be printed on slick, glossy, magazine-quality paper, will be published quarterly and will utilize full color throughout the publication. 

Tom Didato, longtime award-winning Chronicle-Independent sports editor who has extensive ties to the Camden horse community, has been named editor.

The Camden Horse will be inserted in the Chronicle-Independent and placed in key locations throughout Kershaw County, providing, by far, the widest distribution of any publication of its type in the area.

News content will include extensive coverage of the Camden equine community with a heavy emphasis on steeplechasing. Additionally, the magazine will publish columns written by local individuals who are intimately involved in the Camden horse scene. The Camden Horse will also be available online, benefiting both readers and advertisers.

“The horse industry and those involved in it have always contributed immeasurably to the fabric and quality of life of our city. Camden Media Co., too,  through its flagship newspaper the Chronicle-Independent, has been the local source for equine news since the very founding of the horse industry here. Because of that industry’s growing importance to Camden, we feel that now is the right time for our company to publish a high-quality magazine devoted exclusively to it,” said Mike Mischner, publisher of Camden Media Co.

For further information on The Camden Horse magazine, contact its editor, Tom Didato, at or Betsy Greenway, Camden Media Co. advertising director, at or by telephone at 432-6157.

In addition to The Camden Horse, Camden Media Co. publishes the Chronicle-Independent, the West Wateree Chronicle, the Lee County Observer, the Blythewood Country Chronicle, the Ft. Jackson Leader, The Shaw News, the Lake Wateree News and The Connection. Camden Media Co. also owns and operates Kershaw County’s two local news websites: and
