Letter From the Editor - August 2018
● By Robert Frey
Letter From The EditorBy Shanna P. Dickens
As you may have already heard, in July Acadiana LifeStyle was purchased by Wick Communications. Wick Communications also owns the Daily Iberian. With both publications calling New Iberia home and being owned by the same company, there may be some confusion about the potential of the two merging. This isn’t the case at all. Acadiana LifeStyle and the Daily Iberian each serve the community in very separate and unique ways, and neither publication intends to change that.
So, here is what you can expect to see change…absolutely nothing. Over here at Acadiana LifeStyle, we are pretty proud of the product we produce for our community, and from what we hear, you like it, too. Our advertisers and readers will continue to enjoy the same magazine they expect and deserve. Christina Pierce will serve as the Publisher for both publications. Our team got to know Mrs. Pierce last year when she was a Stars of Style honoree. Almost a year to the date, and we are welcoming her aboard. We can’t wait to see what she does at the helm of Acadiana LifeStyle.
Now, for some people who are merging…this issue is full of wedded bliss. Our Fall Bridal Section, “Amour” begins on Page 29. It’s full of beautiful gowns, diamonds, love stories and, of course, wedding cakes. As if marriage isn’t enough of an adventure, this issue also took us off road to explore the various tracks, trails and courts of Acadiana – you can check those out on Page 19.
Ps. Our 2018/2019 Health & Wellness Guide is on stands. It’s an annual specialty publication that we produce to better help you access the names, addresses, phone numbers and specialty information for local physicians, dentists, health centers, hospitals, pharmacies, medical suppliers and other medical experts.
