Hernando Times moving to new Cortez Boulevard location

Editor's note:

The Hernando Times is on the move.

Next Friday, Feb. 5, will be our last day in the two-story building we built and moved into in 2003 on Cortez Boulevard, just east of the Suncoast Parkway.

Our news and advertising staffs will head down the street, to the west, to 13045 Cortez Blvd. — on the east end of the Western Way Plaza shopping center. The new location — in the northwest quadrant of the busy intersection of Cortez and Mariner boulevards — will be handy for residents and customers in both Brooksville and Spring Hill. The newspaper distribution center behind our current location will remain.

As we've reported previously, late last year we sold our office at Cortez and Winter Street for $4.15 million to the Hernando County Utilities Department, which plans to use the 29,000 square feet of space to consolidate administrative and customer service functions.

Like many newspapers, we are not as big as we once were and simply did not need all of the space any longer. Rest assured, the change in location in no way diminishes our long-standing commitment to our readers and advertisers — to provide the most thorough coverage of any news outlet in Hernando County.

As we transition into our new office space, a process that could take a few days, you will be able to continue to reach us at all of the same phone numbers and email addresses. The main news line is (352) 754-6101. The advertising numbers are (352) 848-1440 for retail and 1-800-333-7505, ext. 7842, for classified. For home delivery issues, call (352) 796-4456.

I will update you next week when we know the exact date our new office will be open to the public. Once we're settled in, we hope you'll come by and visit.

If you have questions, don't hesitate to contact me at (352) 754-6119 or mkonrad@ tampabay.com.

    The blood had already pooled when the bodies were found, bashed and beaten. One was dead. The other was still gasping, but it was too late.
