Masthead Maine publishes five daily newspapers including the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram, Morning Sentinel, Kennebec Journal, Sun Journal, and Times Record and 17 weeklies through its commercial printing facility in Portland.
Lisa and Greg sit down to talk about how Lisa is responsible for more than 400 employees, how she makes sure she runs a profitable business and the best and worst parts of her job. They also discuss Lisa’s Like a Boss series where she interviews other CEOs from different companies, and how she finds time to volunteer through it all. The two also speak about print journalism, its future, and how the pandemic affected the publication of Masthead Maine.
