About Us

Our Mission

Since 1984, The Business Journal has built upon its foundation as the top resource to business and community leaders by promoting the growth of business and industry throughout Mahoning, Trumbull and Columbiana counties in Ohio as well as Mercer and Lawrence counties in Pennsylvania.

We do this with flexible and creative content features, including regional business news, business strategies and professional resources.

Who is The Business Journal?


We are a locally owned, independently operated multimedia publisher based in Youngstown, Ohio. Through the years, we’ve transformed from an advertising-supported newspaper to a multiplatform publisher that’s committed to the success of the regional business community:

Our print edition, The Business Journal, is published twice a month and reaches more than 45,000 readers.

Our website, BusinessJournalDaily.com, is updated frequently every business day with the regional news and resources that matter most to business professionals and the public, and is relied upon by more than 50,000 active monthly users.

Our video features, including the Daily BUZZ webcast, are published every business day and viewed by thousands of high-income business and community leaders as well as residents of the region.

We leverage an extensive social media audience of nearly 30,000 followers across Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter to maximize the visibility of our content.

Our Daily Headlines and Afternoon Update emails provide a comprehensive source for daily business news and are sent every business morning and afternoon to more than 7,000 subscribers with open rates well above industry averages. Special feature emails, like Getting Ahead and Business Strategies, reach readers each weekend.
