History and Mission


The Exception Magazine launched in 2008 to bring quality local and regional news onto the web.

From our humble beginnings as the original online news source for the State of Maine, we’ve since expanded our coverage to other states and local communities across America as our audience has grown. That said, we are still as committed as ever to delivering nonpartisan, original journalism to our readers.

Here at The Exception Magazine, we believe that we can change the world one listicle at a time.
