NEA's GOOD NEWS - February 2021 cover on wood table

HIGHLIGHTING THE GOOD NEWS IN NEA

Premiere Magazine published its first edition in May of 2007. Since then, we have shared many stories of people doing good in their community. It is our mission to say thank you to those serving Northeast Arkansas and to inspire others to do the same. Our monthly publication focuses on what's happening in the area through coverage of local events, people, and culture.

We distribute 6,500 copies every month, with an increased distribution of 8,000-10,000 copies during the months leading up to Christmas. Premiere Magazine is a FREE magazine for our readers. We do not charge a subscription fee. Instead, Premiere Magazine is available to pick up at hundreds of locations in Paragould, Jonesboro, Brookland and Trumann.

Interested in advertising? Reach out below. We'd love to discuss how we can do MOR(e) for your business.

Dina Mason

Publisher

Dina Mason, co-owner of MOR Media Inc., launched Premiere after a few friends and colleagues convinced her a community magazine would be good for Paragould. Since its first published issue, she has grown the platform to also serve Jonesboro and surrounding areas. Her favorite part of owning a media company is being a part of many small businesses' success. Dina has sold advertising since 1989 in three different markets, so she's had the opportunity to learn about many types of businesses and what they have done to be successful.

"My staff and I pride ourselves on developing creative campaigns and figuring out a cost effective budget that an advertiser can live with and see results from over a period of time. I love sharing that information so you can apply it to your business and watch it grow. That is what good marketing plans do…grow your business," Dina says.

In her "spare time", and we're not sure where she finds it considering how many community organizations she's involved in, Dina enjoys attending her husband Perry's lawnmower races and playing with her puppy, Mindy.

Meet Our Team

It takes a lot more than just the people listed below to make Premiere happen. We are so grateful for each of our contributing writers/columnists, our sales team, and our supporters for making NEA's good news possible.
Lindsey Spencer
Lindsey Spencer

Manager of Content & Designer

A love of writing, photography and design make managing Premiere the perfect fit for Lindsey. In her time at MOR Media, Lindsey has found a family as much as a team. Her passion to be a part of MOR's success has led to a revamp of Premiere's brand and the launch of an entirely new platform for the company. Lindsey is on the board for the Jonesboro Young Professional Network and the co-chair of the Jonesboro Regional Chamber of Commerce's A-state Committee. 

When she's not typing away at her keyboard or laying out the next magazine, Lindsey enjoys running (yes, really!), hiking, and traveling with her husband, Jackson, and their dogs, Kona and Mira.

Editor

Richard loves photojournalism and the interaction it allows him with members of the community. Richard believes if there are 100,000 plus people living in the area, then there are 100,000 plus stories to tell. The magazine brings him the opportunity to share those stories about our community to are readers while carrying our advertisers' messages as well. In his spare time, Richard enjoys watching, playing and photographing softball games, spending time with family, and reading.
