The Beacon Newspapers is a family-owned business dedicated to providing well-written, useful information of interest to people 50 and over and their families. The company was founded in 1989 by publisher Stuart Rosenthal and his wife, Judy, the associate publisher.
Free monthly print editions of the Beacon cover the Greater Washington (D.C.) area, the Greater Baltimore (Maryland) area and Howard County (Maryland). A fourth edition — covering the Coachella Valley, where Palm Springs, Calif. is located — launched in January 2012, representing our first foray outside the mid-Atlantic area. Source
