This morning, the ownership team welcomed the current Managing Editor, Elli Gentile, to the partner group.


Elli was instrumental in the launch of the Local Pulse back in March.

“She is gifted in telling good news stories, and that is what we are hyper-focused on – the good news that is happening within local small businesses, sharing the impact of nonprofits and the work they are doing; and highlighting what our beautiful city has to offer in entertainment and family activities” shared Lisa Long Lyter, Partner, and Editor in Chief.

Additionally, “It has always been our intention to honor those that are working on this #goodnews project, and we have started with making sure Elli realizes how valuable she is along with her work, how valuable she is in the effort of sharing good news, and how important she is in her role of leading our team of editors and writers” said Long Lyter.

Elli will remain in her current role as Managing Editor and will also take on additional fiscal responsibilities. Elli is also the manager of the Social Media Team for Red Iron Design House.

Welcome, Elli!  We are so glad you are a part of this project in making a difference in Pensacola!
