The corporation was founded by the late Ronald J. Woods, a former Michigan industrialist and Florida resident. After his purchase of Palm Beach Media Group in 1991, Mr. Woods invested heavily in the firm, bringing in extensive business and publishing talent and upgrading both facilities and staff. The results placed Palm Beach Media Group—a profitable and fast-growing privately held corporation—firmly on the publishing map.
In 2017 Palm Beach Media Group was acquired by Hour Media Group LLC.
