Frequently Asked Questions

What has changed and why?

We’re inviting our audience to choose their level of access to our content. Our goal is to create a unified experience across our many platforms including the website, the mobile app, the print edition and our email newsletters.

On July 28, 2021, the Youngstown Publishing Co. upgraded its website,, to a digital subscription-based site.

As a trusted source for business and community news and information in the five-county region and beyond, our team of reporters, videographers and editors work very hard to bring you the most informative and in-depth reporting you need. This takes sustained financial investment and the work of committed professionals.

The Business Journal continues to evolve to bring you the news that matters most to you. While we are known for our extensive coverage of the regional business community, we have also expanded our scope to include entertainment, arts and lifestyle, sports and community news.

Our subscribers recognize the value of having reliable, trustworthy reporters who live and work in these communities covering local news, as well as having a locally owned, independent publisher producing the stories that interest our residents the most.

In short, local independent journalism matters. And online subscriptions help keep that going.

What do I get if I subscribe?

That depends.

If you create a *FREE* Basic account, you’ll get to read five premium posts or articles monthly before we start nagging you to upgrade your level of access. So you might as well pick the Digital Only level or Print + Digital level to avoid that headache. We can be quite persistent.

Once you go for one of the premium subscriptions, you get unlimited access to all of our online content. That includes every single article and video we post daily, as well as our eEdition flipbook of our print edition.

Unregistered users can access Online Exclusives, like our Daily Buzz webcast and 3 Minutes With interviews, as well as Workforce Development content, such as Brain Gain, Business Strategies Video Network and webinars. But that’s about it. None of our daily news posts or featured articles will be available to you.

Got it. So how do I get access?

Existing paid subscribers are entitled to receive free, unlimited access to our website and all digital content with registration. If you have received your registration login, click HERE to login with your username and password for complete online access.

If you are a long-standing print subscriber and need your login information, contact our office at 330.744.5023 or by emailing

If you have already registered for a *FREE* Basic account, remember you are limited to five monthly posts or articles at However, you can upgrade to either Digital Only or Print + Digital by clicking one of the subscription options above to enjoy unlimited access to our website.

It looks like the Print + Digital is less expensive than Digital Only. What gives?

Consider it an incentive. We put a lot of hours into our publication and we’re always very proud of the result.

By selecting the Print + Digital subscription option, not only do you pay less every year, but you get your very own printed copy twice monthly to have, hold and love. The best part is you can use it with zero Wi-Fi connection. Think of the possibilities!

And did we mention that the print edition includes exclusive market intelligence and data not found on the website? Tables upon tables of market data to help you make the most informed decisions about your business and your investments.

Plus, not to brag, but the C-suite movers and shakers in the region read our print edition all the time. When you have a copy of your very own tucked under your arm, be prepared for an onslaught of approving nods from top execs.

Sometimes when I click a story link from the email, the website says I need to register. Why?

Don’t panic. If you’ve already registered on our website, your login information is still there. As with any website that has a login feature, however, it’s going to automatically log you out from time to time. It even happens to us, and we work here!

If you hit that wall when you try opening a story, just click the Login link in the upper right corner of the website, enter your login info, and you should be all set.

I can’t remember my password.

Happens to the best of us. Go to the Login link in the upper right corner of the website and click “Lost Password?” You’ll be asked to enter your email address to get a new password sent to you.

I tried all of that and I’m still having trouble.

We’re here to help as best as we can. Give us a call at 330.744.5023 or email and one of our staff will find a way to get you back into the swing of things as quickly as possible.
