From its humble origins in Newark, New Jersey, for nearly 90 years, the venerable ‘Italian Tribune’ has grown to become perhaps the most important English-language voice in Italian American media.
We’ll meet the inspiring couple who has made this multi-generational Italian family business into not just “the Paper of Record for the Italian American Community,” but who has also bucked the trends of print media with a weekly newspaper that continues to attract a growing and ever-younger audience.
They’ll share the history of this unique periodical, and why its place as a substantial English-language source for Italian American news has always kept it at the epicenter of the Italian experience in America.
We’ll also explore the work of “Uncle” Floyd Vivino… the “Italian American Mark Twain,” and how a tight-knit team of five passionate Italian Americans has continued to evolve this venerable institution for an ever-changing population.
And, in true Italian American Podcast style, we’ll discover the mysterious origins of the North American Tripe Association, and how it’s yearly event has become a standing-room-only symbol of the Italian American community of the 21st Century!
Share in an incredible exploration of this community treasure in an episode you won’t want to miss!
