YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Those working for one of the Valley’s news outlets have a new look to boast now.
The Business Journal recently unveiled a new webpage, which was designed by two local entrepreneurs working in Youngstown.
Publisher Andrea Wood said the paper, which focuses on the area’s business community, has seen significant growth in its usage online, with viewers checking stories from all across the country and even China, and now reaches a larger audience than the Journal’s print version.
“Our print edition reaches 45,000 readers. Our online edition reaches 60,000 unique readers every month. So we have to innovate, we have to keep ahead of it and keep up with the technology. And the technology is always changing,” Wood said.
Wood believes the Journal’s” web traffic is being drawn by increasing growth that’s being seen in the area’s manufacturing sector, as well as new businesses, restaurants and entertainment moving into Youngstown’s downtown.
