THE EXTOL TEAM debuted our first issue — featuring WHAS11’s Chief Meteorologist Ben Pine on the cover — in February 2015. Thanks to you and our advertising partners, over the past two years, we’ve increased in circulation, distribution locations, pages, scope and the size of our own team. To say we’re grateful is an understatement.
In addition to continuing bimonthly production of Extol Magazine and hosting regular Extol events — which included the Extol Sports Inaugural Benchmark Mile presented by Norton Sports Health on the morning of Dec. 31, 2016 — in January, we debuted Extol Sports, a monthly publication dedicated to fitness, health and sports in our community, which spans both sides of the Ohio River and has allowed us to welcome a bevy of writers talented in this arena. To say we’re growing is an understatement, too.
So, what comes next? Plenty, and we hope you’ll stay with us on this exciting ride.
But, that also means we’ve decided to take a break from our bimonthly launch party. We’ll be back with more in-person events, but for now, we have focused our time on relaunching a revised www.ExtolMag.com and launching www,ExtolSports. com for your viewing and reading pleasure. Please bear with us as we work out the kinks and start delivering much more content on both platforms and our social media channels, too. Soon.
As far as this issue of Extol is concerned, inside our pages you’ll find a myriad of stories, tips, features and coverage I hope offer at least a momentary reprieve from the overwhelming negativity that seems to surround us these days. Yes, it’s important to be informed about what’s happening daily in our world, but the Extol Team works hard to bring you positive stories we think are just as important and lasting.
As always, thanks for taking the time to pick us up. I hope we do the same for you.
Editor in Chief
