About Us

Thank you for visiting Toms River Shorebeat!

We’re your new source for news, features and everything that makes up life in Toms River, N.J. Whether it’s local politics, breaking news or a heartwarming story about your neighbors, we’re your true local news website that is here to serve you and cover the town you (and we) live in and know best!

Toms River Shorebeat was founded by award-winning journalist Daniel Nee, a lifelong Ocean County native who was previously editor of both the Toms River and Brick Patch sites while the company was active in the area. He created Shorebeat as a new platform to deliver the news and community information Toms River and Jersey Shore locals care about most, without any distractions or fluff.

Daniel especially enjoys reporting on government, politics, as well as boating, fishing and coastal issues. He holds a B.A. in Political Science from Monmouth University and an M.A. in Public Policy, also from Monmouth. He is a member of the Board of Directors of the Brick Township Chamber of Commerce and sits on the Stakeholder Advisory Board of the New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium.

We hope you enjoy the site, and we welcome your feedback and suggestions on how to make Toms River Shorebeat the very best it can be. Daniel welcomes your e-mails or calls any time:
