Howie at job

Hi! I’m Howard Schwach, the editor of Thanks for stopping by.

I have been a professional journalist since 1970, variously working as an editor for the company that published Weekly Reader and other school periodicals, for the NYC Board of Education, for The Rockaway Journal, The Wave and the Oceanside/Island Park Herald. At 74, I started this paper, the only digital-only, hyper-local daily newspaper covering Rockaway and Broad Channel. I have also authored several books for teenagers with reading disabilities and dozens of newsletters and curriculum guides for teachers.

To contact Schwach at, email at or call 347-204-1194. Advertising will be available starting with January 18. Rates available.
