James Feudo from JVF Solutions and Susan Petroni

May 1, 2023

JVF Solutions was selected to run the day-to-day operations of the SOURCE and assist with the transition to a self-publishing model.

Framingham, MA, United States, May 1st, 2023 – For seven years, the SOURCE (which covers Framingham, Ashland, Natick, and more) has been the go-to news source for residents in MetroWest. It was created by Susan Petroni, a popular editor at the Framingham Patch, upon leaving the Patch. Since its launch in April 2016, Source has grown to an online community with over 16,000 Facebook followers and nearly a million page views per month.

In April, 2023, Susan Petroni accepted a full-time job with the City of Framingham. Due to her role within the city, she had to hand over operations of the SOURCE to a webmaster. Her choice was JVF Solutions, MetroWest’s premier web design and digital marketing agency. Susan had worked with JVF’s owner James Feudo on the Framingham High School Hall of Fame Website as well as presented in a digital marketing class he taught. “When I was looking for someone that was not just capable of maintaining the SOURCE, but would also hold it to its ethical standards, I immediately reached out to James and was happy he would help.”

“It’s a huge honor to have earned Susan’s trust to manage the SOURCE,” Feudo stated. “It’s been the most important local news source in our area for years. I have a huge amount of respect for what Susan accomplished. From building the website herself to being a one-woman operation that covered every sport, school, city, and community event in the area. She grew an audience that was larger than the big newspapers in town. So I’m excited to be a part of the SOURCE team.”

JVF Solutions will take over operations of the SOURCE starting May 1st, 2023.
