(Beaver Falls, Pa) The Best of Beaver County is easy to discover; it’s right on your radio! Tune in every Thursday from 11 to 11:30 am for “the Best of Beaver County”, on WBVP and WMBA presented by St. Barnabas. The show is hosted by Jim Roddey and is dedicated to shining light on the great things going on right here in your neighborhood, and the people that are making it happen. It was all about the Ladies on the March 14, 2019 edition. Jim enjoyed conversation and insight with Lisa Micco, Managing Editor of Beaver County Times and Bethany Williams, Director of Development for the city of Beaver Falls, PA.
In the first segment Jim talked with Lisa Micco, Managing Editor of the Beaver County Times. Jim asked Lisa where she was born and raised and what brought her to Beaver County. Lisa said she was born and raised in the New Castle Area and graduated from Neshannock High School. Lisa has worked for the Beaver County Times for the last eight years. Roddey and Micco discussed the challenges that a local paper such as the Beaver County Times faces and how Lisa would like to see the paper return to it’s Heyday in the future. Jim asked Lisa what are the three things she would like to see happen in Beaver County and she said continued job growth, rake advantage of the rivers and finally to see the Beaver County Times grow.
In the second segment Jim talked with Bethany Williams who is the Director of Development for the City of Beaver Falls. Bethany talked about how she grew up in West Chester Pa and attended Geneva College. Bethany liked it in Beaver County so much that she took the first job that was offered to her and that happened to be in code enforcement for the city. Bethany and her husband both attended Geneva and have two children. Bethany talked about her love for Beaver Falls and she shared her long term vision of Beaver Falls with the listeners. Roddey and Williams finished up the conversation talking about Penn DOT’s new project that is set to begin in May that will bring a whole new look to the main street of the City of Beaver Falls.
