South Carolina Business Review
SC Public Radio

Our state is home to the oldest daily newspaper in the South. Just in case you didn’t know. And that newspaper recently received not only 84 awards from the South Carolina Press Association but also first-place honors in the prestigious National Headliner Awards from the Press Club of Atlantic City.

Mike Switzer interviews Autumn Phillips, executive editor at the Post and Courier in Charleston, SC. Disclaimer: The Post and Courier has a business relationship with Voterheads.com, a wholly-owned company of Magnolia Media, Inc., the producer of this program.

After almost 20 years, Mike Switzer retired from Wells Fargo Securities in 2001 as Senior Vice President/Investment Officer and Certified Portfolio Manager. In 1999, he and his wife, Maggie, purchased and operated for eight years the Baskin Robbins ice cream store on Forest Drive in Columbia. They grew the store from a bottom-tier operation in the Baskin Robbins franchise system to one in the top 5% nationwide within three years, tripling sales along the way. While operating the ice cream store, Mike and Maggie received patents for a portable ice cream sink and fold-down sneezeguard they invented and in 2002 started Magnolia Carts, an ice cream cart manufacturing company, which they sold in 2013.
