Meet the Publisher...Barb Murphy


I published my first two editions of Coffee News® on April 17, 2000 printing just 900 copies of each of the two Ocala editions.  

Seventeen years later, I now publish many localized editions of Coffee News® throughout Marion, Lake, Sumter, Putnam and Citrus Counties and am currently printing over 20,000 copies weekly!  

 In over 17 years, there's not a day that has gone by that I have not enjoyed publishing the weekly Coffee News® and hearing the positive comments from my thousands of loyal weekly readers.  Nothing is more satisfying than hearing how I've helped advertisers grow their business with the exposure they've received in Coffee News®.

As publisher, I'm passionate about spending time advising small to medium sized businesses on how to grow their business and lay out a marketing plan.
