Proudly Serving Maryland, Delaware and D.C. Newspapers Since 1908

The Business Monthly Sold to New Publisher

August 9, 2018

The Business Monthly, the biggest selling business publication in Howard and Anne Arundel counties, has changed hands.

Daniel Medinger, an experienced publisher and media executive, has purchased the venerable publication and its digital outlets from current owners Becky Mangus and Cathy Yost. The transaction, that was signed Aug. 6, 2018, takes effect Sept. 1, 2018.

“This is a very exciting opportunity,” said Medinger, an Ellicott City resident. “We live in a very vital and dynamic business community. I look forward to telling the story of how our community works. Our business leaders and creative employees make products and services that help us at home and people around the world. The Business Monthly is a great opportunity to share that news in both print and digitally.”

Becky Mangus, co-owner who also served as publisher of the publication said, “I have been proud to lead this publication for the last 16 plus years. It has meant so much to me to get to know our community leaders and to share news about important developments. However, it’s time to pass the newspaper onto a new publisher who can continue to make the publication flourish and continue to bring local news to the local community.”

Cathy Yost, also a co-owner who ran business operations including advertising sales, said, “I have enjoyed working with business leaders and helping them grow their business with the power of advertising in print and online. While I am going to miss those close relationships, I look forward to seeing how the newspaper will continue to grow.”

“The future of community papers is very good,” Medinger said. “I look forward to working with the business community and local government and nonprofits as well as our readers to make a very special news source.”

Mangus and Yost will continue working with Medinger for several months through the transition.

The Business Monthly, founded in 1992 as a business-to-business newspaper in Maryland covering Howard and Anne Arundel counties, features articles written by, for and about local business people and their companies. For 26 years, The Business Monthly (affectionately known to locals as Biz Monthly) has kept the business community informed on the latest business, government and economic development news as well as the latest innovations in business, banking, finance, real estate development, technology and the many opportunities available to local companies. The newspaper’s hallmarks are integrity, excellence and a responsibility to the community it serves. The pro-business atmosphere of the newspaper encourages the participation of both small and large companies to share their stories and successes, as well as promote their companies.

The Business Monthly is distributed at more than 350 outlets in Howard and Anne Arundel counties and reaches more than 55,000 readers.
