Who the heck are we???
Good morning! This is an exciting day for our family and we couldn’t be happier to share it with all of you. Today marks the birth of My Treasure Coast Now (mytcnow.com), an online news site that’s been two years in the making. Our family has a long history of journalism and marketing experience, and we have dreamed for years of launching our own news site. The fact that we could do so in the Treasure Coast – a place we all called home 22 years ago – makes the entire experience even more special.
