Hoffmann to Acquire Florida Media Group, Publishers of Florida Weekly
The Hoffmann Family of Companies is set to acquire Florida Media Group, LLC, on July 1st, 2022, the publishers of nine newspapers with a circulation of more than 220,000 weekly readers, The Ave Maria Sun, Bonita Springs Florida Weekly, Babcock Ranch Telegraph, Charlotte Florida Weekly, Fort Myers Florida Weekly, Key West Florida Weekly, Naples Florida Weekly, Palm Beach Florida Weekly and Wellen Park Journal.
Winning more than 193 awards from the Florida Press Association, The Society of Professional Journalist and Florida Newspaper Advertising and Marketing Executives association, Florida Weekly and its papers have been well established as a go-to source for local, hometown media, for the past 15 years, in print, digitally and through social media.
“There has been an absence in small town media. The high school basketball team or the local little league and mom-and-pop businesses don’t get as much coverage, if any. It’s a staple to the community and we’re going to bring it back and maintain it in as many places throughout the country as we can.” Geoff Hoffmann, Co-CEO Hoffmann Family of Companies.
