About The Dispatch and The Rock Island Argus

Dispatch•Argus is your link to local in the Quad Cities

Dispatch•Argus•QCOnline is the boutique local media player serving Henry, Mercer, Rock Island and Whiteside counties in Illinois, and Scott County in Iowa.

Environment

Our community is where the Rock River meets the Mississippi, in northwest Illinois and east central Iowa. The Quad Cities sit on that big bend in the Big Muddy, where the river runs east to west.

It’s a beautiful part of the country: Rocky bluffs and driftless moraine give way to rich, rolling cropland, crossed by Interstate 80 on its way from New York to San Francisco.

The region boasts a population of nearly 475,000, making it the 90th largest market in the United States.
