The North Coast Current, founded in 2002, is an online news journal dedicated to news, dialogue, arts and entertainment geared toward the North San Diego County communities of Encinitas, plus Carlsbad, Solana Beach and San Marcos. The Current’s foundation includes the original Coast Dispatch. With the purchase of the Coast Dispatch’s remnants from its last publisher in 2005, the Current’s new-media approach to news and arts coverage is now merged with seven decades of local journalism. Although the Coast Dispatch’s archives are not available to the public at this time, the Current will occasionally republish articles of historical interest.
If you are a local business and would like to distribute the Current to your customers, please email us at the address below.
