Tampa Bay Newspapers introduces its newest monthly publication – Tarpon Springs Beacon.
Thank you for picking up the first issue of the Tarpon Springs Beacon or viewing our new website section.

We’re confident that Tampa Bay Newspapers’ newest monthly publication will appeal to a variety of readers, whether they are interested in entertainment, features or government news.

That’s our forte – community news. We have the track record to prove it.

Since 2009, we’ve launched four monthly publications, three of them serving the north county area, the Dunedin Beacon, the Palm Harbor Beacon and the Tarpon Springs Beacon. The papers continue to grow because we make a commitment to the communities we serve. We cover local government meetings, festivals, concerts, school activities, chamber of commerce events, parades and art shows.

We write stories about outstanding volunteers, fund-raising events to benefit people with health problems, people with interesting hobbies, students recognized for their outstanding achievements, local residents who climb Mount Kilimanjaro or hike the Appalachian Trail.

While many newspapers, large and small, have downsized because of the challenges facing our industry, we believe Tampa Bay Newspapers has positioned itself well for the future. We’ve increased staff to meet the needs of our readers and our advertisers along with expanding our products.

“We are very excited to add Tarpon Springs to our growing family of community publications,” said TBN Publisher Dan Autrey. “In this day of struggling print media, we’ve found a simple formula that works: Provide quality content that is actually about the community being served. We believe Tarpon Springs’ uniqueness, vitality and strong sense of community will be a perfect fit for this newest partnership with Tampa Bay Newspapers.”

Call us if you have a story idea. Tarpon Springs Beacon Editor Kate Feldman can be reached at 244-6165. Email her at

We want to hear from area civic clubs. Over the years we have printed thousands of pictures of check presentations and fundraising efforts undertaken by nonprofit organizations. If we can’t cover your event, we will at least run pictures and articles about it that are submitted from readers.

On our website,, readers can find a wealth of information about upcoming events as well as news and forms for sending us materials.

We love letters to the editor. The best format is email. Send them to See more information about letters on the bottom of this page.

Generally speaking, the deadline to submit articles or photos is at the end of day Thursday the week before publication. Of course, the earlier the better. The next Tarpon Springs Beacon will be published on Oct. 25.

At Tampa Bay Newspapers, we’re proud of reaching so many readers, 227,800, through our weekly and monthly publications.

We look forward to hearing from you and welcome comments about the Tarpon Springs Beacon, your community newspaper.
