Hernando Today is in its new home in the Western Way Plaza.
For several weeks, the award-winning newspaper's staff were housed in a temporary spot elsewhere at the plaza. But this week saw the opening of the newspaper's permanent location at 13045 Cortez Blvd.
The newspaper's office is centrally located between Brooksville and Spring Hill, allowing reporters to access news sites even more quickly when breaking news occurs.
"The staff is excited to finally be in its new home," Hernando Today Editor Michael Terry said. "We can now focus on what's important, which is providing high-quality, in-depth community news to Hernando County residents."
Terry added the new location is already paying off with an increase in walk-in traffic compared to the old location at the corner of Cortez Boulevard and Winters Street.
Hernando Today began more than 30 years ago when it operated out of an office just west of the Suncoast Parkway. In 1992, it moved to a larger site at 15299 Cortez Blvd. and remained there until this year.
"I am so excited to be in our new home," said Brenda Minton, advertising manager for Hernando Today and the Pasco Tribune. "The location is perfect and is centrally located so that we can better serve our community by providing print, digital and social media daily."
The public is invited to tour the new office during a Greater Hernando County Chamber of Commerce ribbon-cutting at 10 a.m. Nov. 7.
"We're excited about moving and updating our facilities and renewing our commitment to Hernando County as their hometown newspaper," Bill Barker, publisher of Tampa Media Group, which includes the Tampa Tribune and Hernando Today, said recently.
Hernando Today is published Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
