The Seminole Chronicle has been in publication since the July 2004.[2]

The Seminole Chronicle mainly serves the Seminole County, Florida communities of Oviedo and Winter Springs, but also delivers to Chuluota and Geneva.

Florida Today Purchase[edit]

In February 2007, Florida Today purchased Knight Newspapers, Inc. which included the Central Florida Future and the Seminole Chronicle. Florida Today is owned by Gannett.[3]

Office[edit]

After purchasing the Chronicle, Gannett moved the Chronicle's production offices to the current location on High Tech Drive, within the Research Quadrangle. Gannett also moved in three other products within the same office: The Central Florida Future, a bi-weekly student newspaper covering University of Central Florida, Moms Like Me, a monthly magazine for mothers, and Saves, a coupon booklet packaged with the Future and the Chronicle. Moms Like Me was discontinued in 2011.

The office address is 11825 High Tech Avenue Orlando, Florida 32817. The phone number is 407-447-4555.

The Chronicle prints 10,000 copies every Thursday year-round, and distributes the papers throughout the surrounding areas of Oviedo and Winter Springs through the use of newspaper boxes and home delivery. In 2011, the newspaper adopted a free home delivery model through the Orlando Sentinel. Currently, papers are distributed to select neighborhoods in Oviedo, Winter Springs, Geneva and Chuluota as well as on racks scattered throughout the community.
