What is B-to-B media?

B-to-B media is critical to how business professionals make decisions, buy products, set strategies and more. In an ABM video, veteran b-to-b journalist Matthew Weinstock says, “This is a way to sink your teeth into a subject matter, and become a subject-matter expert, and then learn how to craft that into a story that really impacts the reader.”

Alaric DeArment, associate editor at Lebhar-Friedman’s DrugStore News Group, started out in the company as a BPEF intern.

“The BPEF’s internship program was a welcome addition to my journalism education and laid a strong groundwork for my subsequent career, providing me with valuable insights about journalism in general and business journalism in particular,” said DeArment.
