‭“‬Everybody focuses on national issues,‭” ‬Dean says.‭

“‬The most important politics are state and local.‭ ‬The major issues‭ ‬–‭ ‬taxes,‭ ‬education,‭ ‬unions,‭ ‬environmental issues‭ ‬–‭ ‬are state and local.‭ ‬Not everything happens in D.C.‭ ‬A lot of it takes place in Tallahassee and on the local level.‭”

“This is a really exciting time and a wonderful addition as we celebrate our fifth anniversary,‭” ‬said Executive Editor Nancy Smith.‭ “‬Ed Dean’s fresh perspective will truly resonate with SSN’s politically savvy readers.”

Dean will offer a weekly column for Sunshine State News — ‭”‬The Dean’s List‭” ‬– looking at Florida’s top political winners.‭ ‬

While he makes no efforts to tone down his conservatism,‭ ‬Dean told Sunshine State News part of the success of his media career has been his focus on other perspectives.‭ ‬That includes bringing in analysts and experts instead of guests who preach to the converted.

‭“‬It’s all about the issues,‭” ‬Dean said.‭ “‬What’s made our show so successful is having voices and analysis from both sides and not just having politicians on.‭ ‬It’s not just one-sided and we’ve always done it this way.‭”

Dean’s shows can be heard in Jacksonville, Tampa Bay, Daytona Beach, Orlando, the Space Coast, the Treasure Coast and South Florida from West Palm Beach to Miami. It can also be heard in parts of Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina.
