Local Author Bekkah Frisch Purchases iHeart Oswego

Bekkah Frisch

iHeart Oswego, Oswego’s only comprehensive local news and events website, is under new ownership.

Bekkah Frisch has purchased the business from founders Victoria and Phil Gailinas, who have recently retired and left the Oswego area.

Launched in 2012, iHeart Oswego promotes and provides business, local government and event coverage with a staff of dedicated volunteer photographers and journalists. The company publishes on both the iHeartOswego.com website and its widely-viewed social media pages.

“I am honored to be carrying Victoria’s legacy forward,” said Bekkah Frisch. “The positive momentum and the incredible team of volunteers she has built at iHeart Oswego are assets not only to the city of Oswego, but to the entire region.”

Frisch has worked extensively in marketing and advertising for both national and regional companies. She currently resides in the Fulton area with her husband and daughter, and has recently published her first novel, “The Great Quiet.”  A magna cum laude graduate of Wells College, she currently serves on the board of Oswego Industries, Inc.

Frisch says that she is pleased with the path iHeart Oswego is on, and hopes to broaden the scope of the site to provide coverage to other parts of Oswego County. “We plan to look for additional volunteer photographers in Mexico, Hannibal, Central Square and other towns,” she said.
