About

Vero Communiqué is a must read for in-depth knowledge and insight on important issues facing Vero Beach, Indian River County, the State of Florida and now, increasingly, National and International issues that affect our area.

Our goal is to cover a wide range of topics that often times have not been covered in the same fashion by other media outlets, or not been covered at all.

We endeavor to blend positive “feel good” stories of local interest along with other local, national and international areas of concern; often suggested by our esteemed readers.  Our readers are our community and they want to read something different.

We are an independent and nonpartisan on-line news organization that seeks to provide authoritative reporting in the public interest while upholding high standards of fairness and accuracy. We endorse the Code of Ethics of the Society of Professional Journalists.

You can see the code here: http://www.spj.org/ethicscode.asp

We strive to encourage a free and open exchange of issues and ideas by welcoming reader’s editorial submissions. Through discussions like these we can all learn more about the topics themselves and the perspectives of others.

We believe what Walter Lippmann believed; that the purpose of journalism was to do “intelligence work.” He saw the facts from which he then communicated to citizens, who were then able to form their opinion(s).

Effective January 1, 2018, Vero Communiqué received 501(c)(3) non-profit status with the Internal Revenue Service.  Donations are tax-deductible in accordance with I.R.S. guidelines.

In order to continue our reporting, expand upon it and make it more regular, we depend on the generosity of businesses, individuals and foundations who recognize the importance of dedicated regional journalism as a community asset.

We also have opportunities for sponsorships and underwriting. Please contact us.

Vero Communiqué reaches 100’s of highly engaged and influential readers across Indian River County and beyond on a daily basis – and we continue to grow our readership on a weekly basis.
