Pocono Business Journal bites the dust

January 27, 2010

The Pocono Business Journal, located in northeast Pennsylvania, will cease publishing with the February issue, according to a story on the Pocono Record’s Web site.

The story states, “Publisher/Editor-in-Chief Marynell Strunk cited the current economic climate and the shrinking print industry as the reasons for the paper’s end, to officially occur on Feb. 5.

“Strunk founded the ewspaper over four years ago, launching the first issue in November 2005. She hired Debbie Burke as editor in August of 2007. The journal was also known for its Editors on the Road presentations and the monthly Business and Books events, as well as its weekly email update ‘Taste of PBJ.’

“‘Coming to this decision has been difficult. It has been a wonderful opportunity to meet and work with the regional business community. I have to thank the advertisers who believed in and supported the publication over the years,’ says Strunk.

“The paper’s Web site, www.pbjonline.com, will remain posted for several months so that readers can view past issues.”
