Rockland County Business Journal

RCBJ (rcbizjournal.com) is Rockland County’s premiere source for business news. RCBJ’s 24/7 digital platform is out front on relevant stories – covering issues from a hyperlocal perspective but with regional and global relevance.

We are the county’s first digital-only news organization founded to serve the community with stories about the economy, retail, real estate, business profiles, and more. We understand how important it is to have a local news source that focuses on issues that matter, and that do so in a timely way. News organizations have turned their gaze away from local news – we fill that void.

RCBJ promotes excellence in journalism, social connectedness and civic engagement through our platform. Our online presence includes our website, daily news blasts to subscribers and social media engagement including Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram.
