Editor & Publisher
Louise Sukle fell under the spell of newspaper publishing straight out of high-school. With no plan on joining the family business, she unexpectedly discovered a passion for newsprint when she was offered a part time job at the Press And Journal.
She apprenticed with her mother, father, grandfather and uncle who inspired and nourished her appreciation for community journalism and newspaper design. In 1994 she and her husband Joe purchased the business and continued the family legacy. Together they expanded the business to include six publications and corresponding internet sites and a commercial printing operation, currently employing over 30 people.
While she has performed almost every task at the newspaper (except for running the press) her first love remains design. An unapologetic print enthusiast, she loves nothing more than the anticipation of the next issue and the promise of new and exciting voices.
Dave Brown is proud to be helping Press And Journal Publications build on a 160-year record of achievement that is nothing short of legendary.

With over 28 years of sales experience in a variety of industries including newspapers and special publications, Dave's unique qualifications have made him an excellent sales manager for Press And Journal's 5-person sales team. Dave is a versatile sales manager and client advocate and truly enjoys making connections and delivering unparalleled customer service.

Senior Account Executive
Like you, Tina Rinehart wants to live in a world where what you do makes a difference. She believes her job isn’t about selling advertising space. Rather, it's about what advertising can do for her clients. As advertising representative for Woman Newspapers and Little Pink Pages, Tina works closely with her clients to achieve a common goal: to build business and brand image. Her remarkable 20+ year career has always involved sales, marketing and customer service. What distinguishes her from others in her field is that she often takes on roles outside of her normal job duties and provides support to her clients. On her own time, Tina lives in Middletown with her husband, youngest son and a ragtag family of adorable canines.
