If you could plant a candy, my 10-year-old began, and it would grow into a plant, blooming with more candies, what kind of candy would you plant?

#1 source of breaking news and information for Southwest Florida (SWFL)
Introduction

We primarily serve Lee County, including the cities of Fort Myers, North Fort Myers Cape Coral, Lehigh Acres, San Carlos Park, Estero and Bonita Springs.

We also publish Parent & Child magazine, Grandeur Magazine, and the Marco Island Sun Times.

The News-Press headquarters is located at 2442 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Blvd., Fort Myers, FL 33901. The company has two bureaus in Lee County; Bonita Springs and Cape Coral.  Our main number is (239) 335-0200.

When was The News-Press started?

The News-Press beginnings can be credited to bad navigation. In 1884, Capt. James Rowan was hired to deliver passenger Stafford Cleveland to a town in Central Florida. Rowan missed the turn and ended up dumping Cleveland on the shores of Fort Myers, printing presses and all. The result: the Fort Myers Press was born in the tiny Gulf Coast community of 349.

Ten years later, Cleveland's newspaper was to get some not-so-friendly competition. The Tropical News and the Fort Myers Press became fierce competitors. The situation became so ugly that the county commissioners stepped in and arranged a merger: The Fort Myers Press absorbed The Tropical News, hence, The News-Press.

How many employees work at The News-Press?

The News-Press employs approximately 450 people who work within seven departments.

What is the mission of The News-Press?

The News-Press is a world-class organization dedicated to serving the local community through exceptional journalism, sales and marketing.
