ICYMI – And You Probably Have…


Unless you closely follow the mortgage industry you may have missed the major investment being made right under your nose, right here in Connecticut, on an enterprise reporting team assembled to cover that industry.

Earlier this week we told you about the move by former Hartford Courant reporter Steven Goode to American Business Media, which is headquartered in Simsbury and led by former Hartford Business Journal editor and business news entrepreneur Vince Valvo.

Over the past several months Valvo has been building a team of experienced Connecticut reporters that is reminiscent of a New York Yankees starting line-up assembled by George Steinbrenner.

The list of notable Connecticut journalists to join Valvo’s effort includes, but is not limited to:

Dave Krechevsky – formerly of the Waterbury Republican-American
Christine Stuart – of CT News Junkie and NBC CT
Mike Savino – formerly of WFSB and president of the CT Council on FOI
Keith Griffin – formerly of the HBJ
Katie Jensen – formerly of the Yankee Institute

Valvo has also out-fitted his Simsbury HQ for multi-media production.

This big investment in the future of niche-news is grounded in Valvo’s long-time belief that “great content makes for great success.”

ABI publishes several mortgage magazines and newsletters, hosts virtual and in-person events, and offers consulting; not unlike other specialty news companies in the present day news marketplace.
