Able Newspaper is for sale. The newspaper for people with disabilities has had a long history of bringing the news to this population, which includes caregivers, families and organizations.
After 31 years Able’s publisher, Angela Miele Melledy is ready to retire, but wants to find a new publisher that is a good fit — someone who will be dedicated to continuing to bring the much-needed news to people with disabilities.
Able is an award-winning publication and most recently received a Folio Award from the Fair Media Council for a feature story on the 31st anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
In addition, Able has been accepted into the Library of Congress archives.
“Both of these events are a great honor for the newspaper and everyone affiliated with it,” Melledy said. “We have a group of dedicated staff members and writers who deserve the recognition.”
Able Newspaper has covered the news that affects people with disabilities since 1991 and has seen awareness and acceptance increase over the years, as people with disabilities become a vital part of society.
Able has a print and online presence. Its website is ablenews.com.
Those interested in getting information about Able and the possibilities for its future may contact the Able offices at 516-939-2253 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
