The News Source of the Working Class, Serving Manatee and Sarasota Counties Since 1987

The Tempo News is to fairly and objectively report news affecting the citizens of Manatee and Sarasota counties. 

In reporting of the news, Tempo will continuously strive to be inclusive of stories covering all elements of our community with a special focus on issues affecting the African American population.

Our primary goal is to improve understanding and appreciation between the races by bridging the social, cultural, economic, and political gaps that now exist, eventually creating a more harmonious environment for all of our citizens to enjoy. We will do this by always reaching out to every segment of our community.
