The Osprey Observer began as a newsletter in 2001. The main focus was to cover community news and activities specifically in FishHawk Ranch. After the first month, residents requested more news from the surrounding community, and we started to expand. We added the subdivision of FishHawk Trails, River Hills and Bloomingdale within the first four months and printed more than 10,000 copies per month after only six months. Quickly we realized there could be unlimited growth to the paper, and we had to determine our focus. What did we want to become?

What continued to set us apart from the rest? The response is content. We are different because our stories cover the communities we are in. We wanted to maintain our reputation as a strong community newspaper despite our desire to grow. Our first goal was to identify 15,000 homes to include in the Bloomingdale/FishHawk edition and then to expand after 18 months into a completely new edition, Riverview.

The Riverview edition started with eight pages and 10,000 homes and is now 36 pages delivered to 16,500 homes in Riverview and Apollo Beach. In 2005, we added our third publication, Osprey Observer Valrico, which was delivered to an additional 12,000 homes. The Valrico paper has also increased from 8 to 28 pages monthly.

In May 2006, we launched our fourth edition, the Osprey Observer Brandon. The Osprey Observer Brandon was well received in the community and was our largest launch ever, starting with a 20-page edition. With the rapid growth of the paper, now publishing four editions totaling more than 80,000 copies monthly, we have added staff on a continual basis, moved into a larger office to accommodate the growth, worked with students and local schools and strived to better the community through event coverage, sponsorship and volunteering.

We currently have a staff of 22, with 14 freelancers, who work to get the newspapers out each month, including graphic designers, news reporters and editorial support, administrative support, interns and photographers. We have heard from residents in Seffner, Ruskin and Plant City that our community newspaper would be welcome there, and we look forward to adding those areas in the future.

In January 2009, in response to community requests, the Osprey Observer acquired the 12-year-old Christian Voice monthly newspaper from Matt Seifter. The 8-page paper was distributed to local churches and businesses.

In six months, the paper had doubled in size to 16 pages full color and was distributed to more than 10,000 local Christians covering the same positive community news that has become the reputation of the Osprey Observer. The Osprey Observer is now celebrating 10 years of publishing award-winning community newspapers and Managing Editor Marie Gilmore is the author of this book that is planned as the first book in the Open For Business!
