About is 100% Local, 100% Manhattan Beach.

We're proud to report on Manhattan Beach news that you won't find anywhere else. From dining and shopping, to Manhattan Beach schools, to local sports, to special events, to the people who make Manhattan Beach so unique - we'll bring you news and features all week long, every week.

DigMB is published as a service to the community by Dave Fratello, a local realtor with Edge Real Estate Agency. Dave, who loves news and writing almost as much as he loves real estate, is also the author of the popular local real estate blog MB Confidential.

Editor Jeanne Fratello is a longtime journalist and writer, and a dedicated volunteer in Manhattan Beach school and civic activities.

Before moving to California, she worked as a reporter in Washington D.C., covering Congress and education policy. In California, she worked in higher education policy for 15 years as a speechwriter to the head of the 23-campus California State University system. She is also a food writer and author of the food blog Jolly Tomato. She is active on social media, having served as a social media ambassador for attractions such as Terranea Resort and Legoland California, and for well-known food brands such as Dole.

In the Manhattan Beach schools, she served for four years as chair of the district-wide MBUSD Communications Committee, and currently serves on the board of the Mira Costa PTSA. She is also a regular volunteer at the Manhattan Beach Farmers' Market, where you can find her at the manager's booth almost every Tuesday afternoon.
