Talk Media’s publications were once again named 2021 finalists by the Florida Press Club.

On October 28, Talk Media was named in two categories: Online, Independent News Site, Class AC & Editorial, Community News, Class C.

In 2020, Talk Media won the # 1 spot in independent news website.

Based in Coral Springs, Talk Media was established in 2010 with Woods and expanded to include Talking Tamarac in 2011, Coral Springs Talk in 2012, and Discussion about the park in 2017. Online publications receive 500,000 to 800,000 monthly visits and have 70,000 followers on Facebook and 32,000 on Twitter.

What was once just a way to connect neighbors in the community has grown and is now a must read for residents of Northwest Broward County – filling the void left by the newspapers.

In 2021, Coral Springs Talk received a proclamation from the Town of Coral Springs requested by City Commissioner Joy Carter, who credited the online news source with supporting residents as Franck Molino, who needed a kidney.

“One of their impressive stories – and they’ve had many – is that they helped a city worker who was in desperate need of a transplant. With the story they published, they helped him get a new kidney, ”Carter said.

Commissioner Shawn Cerra, who is also Director of Sports and School Activities for Broward County Public Schools, added, “On behalf of all the children in our community, I just want to thank you for covering what is happening. in our schools. and in athletics.

The Florida Press Club is a nonprofit organization of writers, editors, photographers, graphic artists, researchers, librarians, and support technicians working for Florida news agencies.

The winners will be announced in December 2021.
