About Us

Gosport is the home base newspaper of the Pensacola (Fla.) Naval Air Station. NAS Pensacola is home of the world-famous Blue Angels, numerous training squadrons and other commands and departments related to naval aviation training. The weekly newspaper has been serving the Pensacola Naval Complex for more than 85 years.

Established in 1921 as the Air Station News, the name Gosport was adopted in 1936. A gosport was a voice tube used by flight instructors in the early days of naval aviation to give instructions and directions to their students. The name "gosport" was derived from Gosport, England (originally God's Port), where the voice tube was invented.

Gosport is published by Ballinger Publishing, a private publishing company, who has proudly published and distributed the paper in both print and online formats since 2009.
