Scott & Theresa Schaefer

South King Media was founded in 2007 by Scott Schaefer, a three-time National Emmy Award winning Writer for "Bill Nye the Science Guy." Schaefer started The B-Town Blog as a hobby, and it soon exploded into a business due to the lack of proper coverage by the local newspaper.

Scott and his wife Theresa – who have lived in the area since 1995 – manage the company.

Soon, the network expanded to cover neighboring cities that were also lacking news coverage, including Des Moines, SeaTac, Normandy Park, White Center and Tukwila. I Love Kent is our latest hyperlocal website, which was obtained in 2018.

We thoroughly enjoy being deeply engaged with our community via local chambers of commerce, fellow businesspeople, arts and artists, fundraiser events and much more, and we look forward to serving your local Advertising needs!
