“When Dan approached me about this opportunity, I was immediately excited,” said Whong, a resident of Columbia. “The Business Monthly has been telling the story of our vibrant business community for almost 30 years, and I look forward to continuing this tradition into the future. I am especially grateful to Dan for the improvements he has made to The Business Monthly as a leader.
Daniel Medinger, owner and publisher of the publication said: “I have been proud to lead this publication for the past three years.

On a personal note: I think Dan has done a tremendous job in developing the growing Business Monthly. The fact that the next owner (Jason Whong) is a seasoned media executive and a resident of Columbia is a great thing for the publication in the future.
