Thanks to a partnership with Knack Factory, Holly Nunan and the Newz by the Nunz music listing blog have now joined Factory Portland.
Holly Nunan is a musician, promotions director for radio stations WFNK, WTHT and WHXR in Portland, and an on-air personality at 107.5 Frank FM. She is also a regular contributor to WCSH 6’s Morning Report and a former host of the local music-focused Music from 207 on 98.9 WCLZ. She has written about Maine’s music scene since 2011 for Dispatch Magazine, Maine Today Media, and Knack Factory.
According to Knack Factory co-founder Alex Steed: “When Holly’s former publisher cut their funding for bloggers, we wanted to keep her voice alive so we hired her and featured her blog on our site. Local music is one of the things about Portland that makes it so special. We look forward to continuing to support Holly’s endeavors, and partnering with Factory Portland to give her a more relevant venue for her work and voice.”
Factory Portland was started by Stephen Quirk in 2010 as a service to aid musicians with photography, design, web, and social media needs. While those services are no longer offered, the site publishes interviews with local and non-local musicians and reviews of area music events.
Knack Factory, a content and strategy firm based in Portland, Maine, provides video, photography, and social media services. The company was started in Portland, Maine in 2012 by Alex Steed, Kurt Graser, and Zack Bowen.
