As Media & Communications Manager, one of the biggest responsibilities of my job is writing press releases for not only our clients but also for 898 Marketing. From opening our new office to hiring new employees to gaining new clients, the news never stops around here.  One of the challenges many businesses face is spreading the word about events, sales, exciting news, and everything else going on with their business. The easiest way to get information out to the local news media is with a press release. Media outlets have multiple platforms and those platforms need to have current, relevant content...

Boardman, like many places in the Mahoning Valley, is home to so many great restaurants. One such location, settled on South Avenue, is Magic Tree Pub & Eatery.

Life. It is the most precious and fragile thing on this earth. Every day we wake up and face the day ahead, not knowing the events that will transpire. These events can make us as equally as it can totally break us down. We don't know what the day will bring, nor if we will have another day after it is over. As I, like most people, come to grips in my own ways with the shocking news of the tragic helicopter accident that took the life of one of the all-time greatest basketball players, Kobe Bryant, along with his 13-year...
