To enlighten, entertain and empower our audience to do more than grumble and gripe about Sarasota’s direction and destiny.
To provide an alternative platform of honesty and diversity, speaking truth to the power of the fourth estate as a fundamental and necessary actor in the rise and development of any great community.
THE NEED FOR A NEWSPAPER LIKE THE PHOENIX HAS BEEN GROWING FOR THE PAST DECADE.
Over the years we have seen a consolidation of media outlets by large, non-local corporate owners, and in some cases a proliferation of primarily advertising driven outlets that seek only to profi t rather than pursue the truth.
Begun as an email newsletter, the Phoenix has stepped into the void to provide Sarasota’s more active
community members with a truthful lens on the local political and civic scene. Our readership is comprised
of a full spectrum of different political viewpoints and income levels and our distribution is concentrated in
neighborhoods of high affl uence and year round residency, primarily encompassed within the City of Sarasota
