From on the air at WFMJ anchoring your morning news with Christa Amendola to joining Lisa Resnick in the podcast studio, Steve Vesey loves a good microphone and reason to talk the Valley. He has a unique perspective, growing up in Vienna, going to Ohio University, and starting his reporting career out of state before returning here five years ago. They talk about what’s changed since they were growing up, all our area has to offer, and where we’re going. And of course, some opinions about our local craft beer scene and some cool stories from his time covering the Buffalo Bills. Enjoyed over some cold ones from Noble Creature and Modern Methods.
What do you get when you mix an entrepreneur, marketing extraordinaire, sneaker enthusiast, and a heavy dose of positivity and genuineness? Jeff Ryznar – valley native and advocate, Ursuline grad, and founder of 898 Marketing. This is a conversation you won’t want to miss. Jeff and Lisa talk about his approach to his business, advice for being your best self and to entrepreneurs, what Youngstown means to him, and where he sees it going. Sprinkle in some fond memories of the Boulevard, and you’ve got it all. Beverage of choice for this conversation: Noble Creature.
Did you ever wonder what goes into running a minor league baseball team, what kind of beers they have on tap at their stadiums, their impact on the local community or what the heck is going on with the possible contraction? Well Youngstown native, Cardinal Mooney and YSU alumn, and General Manager of the AAA Norfolk Tides (Baltimore Orioles affiliate) Joe Gregory has you covered. He joined Lisa in the studio to talk all this and more, over a some of our local brew. And naturally, the conversion moved to the great craft brew scene in Norfolk/Virginia Beach area, centered by O’Connor Brewing Co, Smartmouth and more. Definitely worth the trip!
