Finally. We’ve arrived. After months of meetings, interviews, and long drives, The Florida Independent is here.

As the newest arm of The American Independent News Network, our mission is simple: to publish stories that shed light on underreported issues, to write pieces that make complicated issues clearer, to deliver the knowledge you need to make informed decisions about our democracy. Simple maybe, but also ambitious, and we’re thrilled to take on the challenge.

But we need you to make it happen. We need your feedback. Drop us a line via email when you think we’ve done a good job, and holler at us when you think we haven’t lived up to our mission. We also need your help spreading the word. Please share our links far and wide, and be sure to become a fan on Facebook ( and follow us on Twitter ( Want to know more about who we are? Check out our Staff page for details on the team we’ve built to cover the issues that matter to Florida.

Every day, when you come to The Florida Independent, you can expect we’ve done the hard work of reporting on the stories other outlets are ignoring. So bookmark our page, and keep coming back. Let’s get to it.
