WordSouth team having funWordSouth is a creative services firm. We work with electric utilities, telecommunications companies and the associations that serve rural and small-town America. Their mission becomes our mission as our hard work and big ideas generate results and earn their trust in us as a true communications partner.

WordSouth is comprised of a team of professionals with many years of communications experience. Our team members understand the rural communities and small towns served by our clients. We are rural, and we know the unique challenges faced by the electric and telecommunications companies who deliver vital services to these markets.

We help rural electric and broadband providers Tell Their Story, Market Their Services and Train Their People.

WordSouth was formed on New Year’s Day 1996 by Stephen V. Smith, an award-winning journalist, and his wife, Michele Smith, a graphic designer. In July 2020 WordSouth was acquired and became a part of the Pioneer Utility Resources family. Together, with another subsidiary ARC Media, the organization is the nation’s premier communications partner for rural and hometown utilities.
