NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - Rebecca Greene, veteran reporter, and Gail Gordon, corporate lawyer, have launched TAPinto Fair Lawn/Glen Rock, offering hyperlocal coverage in municipal government, education and happenings around town.
TAPinto.net, which now reaches 7 million readers throughout New Jersey and lower New York state during the year, was founded in October 2008 by Michael and Lauryn Shapiro who sought to provide their town's residents with an all-online, objective, independent, daily local newspaper.
Michael Shapiro met the two women separately: Gordon, a publisher-in-the-making, and Greene, an editor. After hearing their stories, he realized it was a good match. Gordon provides advertising and business structure support, while Greene manages day-to-day operations, with full control of editorial.
Gail B. Gordon, Esq., a native of Pittsburgh, PA, is of Counsel to the law firm of Florio Perrucci Steinhardt & Fader with five offices in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Additionally, she operates her own public affairs consulting firm and is a member of the bar in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Rebecca Greene is a seasoned writer, reporter and editor in Bergen County where she has worked for 25 years. For the better part of those years, Greene worked for the North Jersey Media Group in the weekly division covering government, education, zoning and planning issues.
She has received several awards for her writing from the New Jersey Press Association and Garden State Journalists.
Greene attended Syracuse University's SI Newhouse School of Public Communications and the Crouse Hinds School of Management where she received a dual bachelor of science degree. She lives in Fair Lawn with her husband, a veteran New York City teacher, where for the past 25 years, they raised two daughters, graduates of Boston College and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. She was an officer of the Fair Lawn PTA for 10 years.
