Pittsburgh Better Times is a lifestyle publication and website serving the nearly one half-million individuals* in Pittsburgh and surrounding counties who are divorced, widowed, and separated. Backed by my 25-year experience as a niche publisher of titles including Western Pennsylvania Hospital News, Pittsburgh Boomers, Next Generation, and Western Pennsylvania Nursing News, this print and digital magazine will be driven by the voices of our writers and the audience we plan to serve.
With the loss of two great friends, Leo Rebholz and Karen Houston, I have seen their respective spouses, Kathy and Jerry, navigate through the grief process and find their new “normals.” Additionally, my wife and I are now helping our daughter, Kristen, as well as our two grandchildren, undergo the emotional upheaval of a divorce. We’re supporting them through this difficult time and helping them refocus and rebuild their lives.
Always being someone who tries to see the positive things in life, I wanted to create a vehicle for those who are in different stages of moving on with their lives and are discovering their new normal. With Pittsburgh Better Times, I hope to highlight and profile those individuals who are divorced, widowed, and separated in a positive way and inspire others as they continue on with their lives.
Pittsburgh Better Times will feature educational and informative articles as well as enriching and empowering stories about life, love, and leaps of faith. Our aim is to meet the diverse, personal needs of our readers by delivering relevant information on arts & entertainment, business, careers, health, humor, money management, nutrition, online resources, relationships, self-improvement, travel, volunteerism, and more.
As an extension of our brand, readers can also follow Pittsburgh Better Times through our social media channels such as YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook—to connect with others who share similar personal experiences, challenges, ideas, and questions.
