B Square Beacon spotlights life in Bloomington, Indiana, starting in the center of the city—the county courthouse square.
Currently, the only writer for the Beacon is journalist Dave Askins, who lives in downtown Bloomington. In early 2019, when the website was launched, Mary Morgan (Dave’s wife) also contributed. Now she works as director of advocacy for The Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce.
B Square Beacon soft-launched since July 1, 2019. The hard launch, with a way to support The Beacon financially (not a paywall) came on Jan 1, 2020.
