Island smoothie in the news

Our State magazine is a popular publication that has been around for a long time. In fact, they sprung up during the most unlikely of times, when extra money for a magazine was seen as a luxury. The year was 1933 and the country and economy was in the midst of the Great Depression.

Originally called “The State”, the magazine was created when a group of businessmen agreed to sponsor Carl Goerch’s new venture. He was a journeyman journalist who was already known as a broadcaster of Doings of the Legislature on WPTF radio in Raleigh. His idea was for a niche magazine which would delve deeper into North Carolina’s culture.

Carl’s pitch was “Let me run an ad for you in the first four issues. If at the end of the month you find that the publication isn’t worth anything, you can discontinue. On the other hand, if you think it really is worthwhile, I hope you’ll continue using the space.” The first issue printed 2500 copies and Carl never looked back.

This month the magazine featured us in an article called “A Dose of Vitamin Sea at Island Smoothie”. You can read that full article here. We are honored to be featured by the great North Carolinian magazine and hope that you check out the article.
