These are special times that we’re living in and for me, a big part of that is my decision to bring back Boulevard. During its original run from 1999 through March 2011, I was proud to publish a vehicle that enabled us to bring our readers a great cross-section of celebrity interviews, wonderful features about interesting people, beautiful photo spreads and a focus on charities, which continues to be a passion of mine.
After a five-year hiatus, Boulevard is back with the same mission statement. I sat down with Jennifer Fauci to give her some background about Boulevard’s return, my love of publishing and how Anton Media Group got to its current state as a vibrant source of local community news coverage.
In keeping with my passion for charities, Jennifer also did a wonderful job telling the story of Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard and Horse Rescue, only stopping long enough to pen a mouth-watering piece on renowned chocolatier Jacques Torres.
Speaking of eating, our resident foodie Steve Mosco shares how versatile duck eggs are, dishes with celebrity chef Andrew Zimmern and also goes one-on-one with prolific voice-over actor H. Jon Benjamin (Archer, Bob’s Burgers).
Christy Hinko casts a wide net on local sights whether she’s spending a day at the National State Park that is Sagamore Hill, going behind the scenes at the Gold Coast La Selva mansion or chatting with Debra Del Vecchio about her efforts at bee preservation.
We’ve also got all corners of the entertainment world covered as Dave Gil de Rubio sat down with Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Gregg Allman, got an exclusive interview with the leads of the Broadway smash On Your Feet! The Story of Gloria and Emilio Estefan and also got a hold of Melissa McBride, who plays Carol Peletier, one of the leads of the red-hot AMC series The Walking Dead, which is returning for its eagerly anticipated seventh season.
Plus, photographer Patrick McMullan, who was aboard for the first Boulevard run, is back and providing us with an array of eye-catching picture pages featuring charity and social events. I’m extremely proud to see Boulevard return and I hope you’ll be as pleased with reading it as we were putting it together.
