KeyWestWatch Media builds custom WordPress websites and develops digital strategies for select small businesses and not-for-profits. We publish Key West Island News, a digital information company.
One company. Dual missions
Key West Island News connects our community. KeyWestWatch Media helps its clients prosper.
Key West Island News is a locally owned digital information company that connects Key West residents and our off-island friends. We foster our One Human Family culture and advance understanding of shared goals. Our funding comes from local and off-island subscribers and investors. Our advisory board includes residents, journalists and community professionals.
KeyWestWatch Media builds and maintains custom WordPress websites for small businesses and not-for-profits. Managing digital media drains resources from small business owners. Those are hours away from customers. KeyWestWatch Media integrates your website and social media; coordinates vendors; manages outreach and marketing; and develops strong, original content.
Linda Grist Cunningham continues her four decades of reporting and writing in her columns from Key West. She explores local and national news and the political decisions that affect our lives, property investments and future of the Florida Keys. Her collection of Dear Connor columns is written for her grandson, Connor. Oh, and, she’ll take the occasional side trip to Key West wacky.
“Show me my path. Teach me along the way. Direct my anger. Grant me peace. Sustain my hope. Let me laugh.”

In late 2017, the Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden board asked KeyWestWatch Media to update its website to reflect its mission, integrate a membership platform and enable donations. We created functionality that integrates content updates and processes payments and memberships. Because, after all, the Garden isn’t about website management, it’s about protecting the fragile ecosystems of the Florida Keys.
The first Key West Yoga and Wellness Fest was in April 2018 — and they needed a website up and running within three weeks. KeyWestWatch Media built the website, integrated a complex ticket sales program using EventBrite and kept the site updated almost everyday as new sponsors, vendors, partners, presenters and teachers were added — and changes were made on the fly. Good thing we believe in all that yoga inner peace stuff.
Key West Yoga Escapes creates luxury yoga retreats that embrace the best of our island culture. In 2016, owner Jennifer Hulse Russo asked KeyWestWatch Media to build the website, integrate a reservations system and e-commerce solutions, and coordinate social media and marketing. We update and maintain the website as business needs change. All that so Key West Yoga Escapes can, well, escape.
Chef Callie Morehouse makes great flour-less chocolate cake and the best Key Lime pie ever, but she’d be the first to say that building and maintaining a website is not on her list of fun things. So, KeyWestWatch Media built it for her and taste-tested a few menu samples. Among the private chef services, her cooking and the provisioning she does for island visitors, the last thing Callie needs is to worry about her website. We do that for her.
