Five years after launching one of Florida’s fastest-growing digital media outlets focused on the Sunshine’s State’s business, policy and political news cycles, The Capitolist marked the anniversary by adding a new feature to the home page: an automated business news “ticker” powered by a pair of the most popular business news media outlets in the nation: PR Newswire and Businesswire. This new information module displays press releases and news published by companies powering Florida’s economy.
The Capitolist is also pleased to announce surpassing the 11,000 subscriber milestone in just over a year since the launch of The ReCap morning email newsletter. The subscriber list includes prominent thought leaders, decision makers and power players from Miami to Tallahassee to Washington D.C., and lands in email inboxes in key capitol complex offices, law firms, corporate C-suites, and in private offices and the mobile phones of subscribers in every major city in Florida.
The new business ticker feature, now live on the left side of the home page, is similar to the The Capitolist’s “breaking news ticker” that has been a popular feature on the right side of the home page since launch. The Capitolist scours thousands of news stories published daily on PR Newswire and Businesswire, looking for Florida-centric business news, then posts the top results on the home page so that our readers can more easily keep their finger on the pulse of what is happening in business, public policy and politics in the 3rd largest state in America and the 16th largest economy in the world.
