Rob Frank was the editor of the Brookline News (1993-1995) and the South Pittsburgh Journal (1996-1997). These short-lived local publications followed the Brookline Journal (1933-1982) and The Journal (1983-1988). Although Mr. Frank's efforts only lasted a few years, his was the only paper that focused solely on the Brookline community.
