Why we exist:
Get The Coast is here to make the Emerald Coast realize that there are better stories within our community. Both in our neighborhoods as well as from our local government.
What we are:
A local news organization centered around Fort Walton Beach, Destin & Niceville (and all the other surrounding areas that make up Okaloosa County).
What we do:
We produce original news articles as well as original shows (video) created exclusively for our area, from government updates to local events to non-profit highlights, and we do this weekly. In addition to that, we publish 3-5 stories a day on our website and send a “curated with love” newsletter early each morning around 7 a.m. (given that there is enough coffee ☕️). We also create original reporting directly on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
