East Stroudsburg, PA, January 27, 2010 – The award-winning Pocono Business Journal will cease publication as of the February 2010 issue.

The journal was also known for its Editors on the Road presentations and the monthly Business and Books events, as well as its weekly email update “Taste of PBJ.”
