The Profile Welcomes Jill Farschman As New Publisher | Print |  E-mail

by Jill Farschman

There are jobs and then there are callings. For me, being the publisher of The Profile is a calling. I’ve been a dedicated reader of the paper since my husband Jay and I moved to Platt Park in 1996. The high quality editorial content keeps me well informed about what’s happening at a neighborhood level and advertisements encourage me to patronize local businesses.

incoming publisher jill farschmAn has been a resident of the Platt Park neighborhood along with her husband, Jay, since 1996. Farschman brings considerable experience in newspaper publishing and digital media to her new role, and hopes to build on the foundation laid by decades of Profile staffers as she shepherds the paper into the brave new world of print/on-line journalism.

The evolution of the new Byers campus at 150 S. Pearl St. continues.
