Here at the Herald, teamwork makes the dream work


Looking back on my past two years as associate publisher, I recognize it has taken a team effort to bring IAH forward to where we are today. We now have increased circulation, more subscribers, an interactive web site, e-newsletters and activity across social media.

Here are some of the dedicated people who bring IAH to life every month to attain the goal of preserving Italian heritage, culture and traditions. 

Art director Rosalinda Rocco makes us look good in print. She created the multi-story front cover design used these past two years. Plus, she makes sure the stories appear on the web site. She and designers Natalie Newhart and Kyle Manzolillo make sure that advertisers present their message in style. And production manager Eric Bolis makes sure IAH gets to the presses in time. The more we grow, the busier they are. I appreciate their commitment and dedication.

Andrea Di Fabio is a valuable asset to the team. She keeps social media channels humming on Facebook, Instagram and X. She cultivates and writes the IAH Arts & Entertainment feature brought to you by Italian American professionals. She also has her hands in IAH sales and stories. Outside IAH, she is the brains behind DiFabio Communications and the owner of Vinyl Revival, not your ordinary record store, located next to the newly renovated and soon-to-be-opened Lansdowne Theater. Plus she is president of the Delco Press Club. 

Al Kemp, the managing editor, is one of the best headline writers in the industry. And I appreciate Rob Martinelli, publisher and CEO of Today Media, for trusting in me assisting him in moving the Italian American Herald forward.
