About Us

East End Local Media Corp. was founded in 2010 by a husband-and-wife team of award-winning journalists: Peter Blasl and Denise Civiletti. They saw the need for authentically local online news in our community. They launched RiverheadLOCAL in January 2010 and SoutholdLOCAL in March 2014.

They are joined by a team of dedicated reporters, photographers and columnists whose mission is to provide accurate, timely local news for the community, to keep citizens informed about important issues, to tell the stories of the people who live and work here, and to give locally owned businesses the opportunity to reach a very targeted audience of local residents and tourists alike.

Peter, Denise and the LOCAL team live in the local community: that’s what gives good community journalism its heart. For them, like the readers who rely on their work and the business owners who rely on the LOCAL sites, it’s personal.
