Newspaper Media Group, the region’s largest publisher of community newspapers, announced it has named longtime media professional Angela Smith as its first Director of Marketing and Events.
Smith will partner with the company’s sales team to develop events in all of the communities served by NMG’s group of more than 40 community weeklies. Along with enhanced marketing programs, the events will enhance the publishing company’s brand awareness.
“One of our primary roles as a community newspaper publisher is connecting with our readers, listening to the people we serve. Angela is an important part of that relationship,” said Perry Corsetti, COO of Newspaper Media Group. “She will be getting us more involved with all of our communities, developing new, exciting events at each of our newspapers.”
