Our Company


Our Story…

Times Media Group was founded in 1997 when Steve Strickbine, a practicing CPA in Phoenix at the time, left the comforts of his job as an accountant, to strike out on his own in pursuit of his dream of becoming a publishing entrepreneur.

What was then a single 8-page publication with a circulation of 5,000 serving the North Scottsdale community, is now Times Media Group, serving a wide variety of demographic audiences and communities with more than 400,000 printed copies and tens of thousands of online readers each month.

Times Media Group stands ready to capitalize on the many emerging opportunities in the fast-moving local media advertising markets. Having placed value creation for its many clients at the center of its mission, TMG is destined to be a market leader for years to come.
