Journalist Theresa Blackburn has always been a lover of long-form journalism, and pined to be able to tell the stories other media outlets didn’t have time for. With the help of her husband, Stephen Chisholm, she sold local businesses on the idea, and secured enough ad sales to officially launch agelessNB in December of 2011.
Since then, agelessNB’s ad and newsstand sales have steadily risen. Now with over 8,000 readers quarterly, the magazine is shipped all over North America, and available in more than 50 locations up and down the St. John River Valley in Western New Brunswick. In December, the magazine will be available in all Indigo, Chapters, and Coles stores across Canada.
Stephen and Theresa have made magazine publishing their full-time profession. in December, to coincide with the national launch of agelessNB, the couple will unveil a second magazine: tasteNB. The culinary magazine is a special edition of agelessNB, and will share the recipes that transport New Brunswickers back to their childhood homes.
Stephen is an electrician, former television cameraman, and a proud Cape Bretoner. Theresa has been a municipal councillor since 2008, is a former journalism instructor, and worked with CBC Radio in Sydney, NS, Iqaluit, NU, and Goose Bay, NL, in various capacities, for nearly 15 years. The couple have three kind and unique children, and live, write, and produce magazines in the historic and picturesque town of Woodstock, New Brunswick.
