Serving the Sunshine State is the motto of this long-established online publication which takes in an area bordered to the west by the Gulf of Mexico, to the north by Alabama and Georgia, to the east by the Atlantic Ocean, and to the south by the Straits of Florida.

International, national United States, and global business news is also streamed on the site.

Title: Florida Statesman
Mission: Florida Statesman was conceived in 2002 to provide up-to-the minute state news, together with national and international headlines as part of a global network pooling resources to deliver a quality service to member portals. Each online publication has been modelled on a newspaper format for familiar readability by users. The locations forming part of the network were selected on the basis of demand for news for that location. Florida Statesman, effectively an online newspaper, provides coverage of the state. International news, business and finance stories are common across the network of sites, and are drawn from a number of sources including original in-house journalists and wire services.
Florida Statesman and the other sites are administered by Midwest Radio Network.
