About Us

This Is Brown County

This Is Brown County is an online news magazine about life in Brown County, Indiana. It is locally owned, locally operated and locally empowered, the creation of award-winning journalists Linda and Rodney Margison, formerly of the Brown County Democrat newspaper.

After much soul-searching with regard to their journalistic integrity, the Margisons made the tough decision to leave the newspaper in October 2009 and create a new product that fits both the Brown County lifestyle and a new media model.

Kim Woods-Owens joined them in October of 2009, after leaving the Brown County Democrat after 7 years as an advertising rep and graphic designer.

J.P. Owens joined TIBC in November 2009, broadcasting the Brown County High School Varsity Boys’ Basketball games online. He now broadcasts the Varsity Football games too.

With This Is Brown County, they will continue the tradition of providing news and information that is important to Brown Countians in an exciting digital format.
