Journalist Dads

January 10, 2021

Andy Close wants kids someday. Brian Hagberg already has some. They sat down with Stacey Gross, the host of the Two Moms Day Drinking podcast and a columnist for Your Daily Local, to discuss parenthood, what they miss about working in a newsroom together, the future of journalism and a host of other topics.

During the course of their conversation, Hagberg and Gross discuss the ups and downs of that wild and crazy wide we call parenting, and more specifically, girl parenting. Gross is the mother of twin girls, while Hagberg and his wife, Autumn, have three daughters of their own.

The trio also touch on their time working together at the Times Observer in Warren. During that time, they encountered a wide-range of personalities, as well as experiencing both the pros and cons of print journalism.

That leads into a lengthy talk about the new venture here at, as well as We converse about what it takes to succeed in the world of digital media, the process of starting a company and a wide array of other subjects related to the business.

A thoughtful and enjoyable discussion, where Hagberg and Close get to contribute to Two Moms Day Drinking podcast, much like Gross has contributed with her role as a columnist here at Your Daily Local.
