Our guest for the December 22nd edition of PlayMakers Talk Show: Tracy Ruckel, General Manager of Community Impact’s Richardson, Texas Edition
Tracy Ruckel, General Manager of Community Impact’s Richardson, Texas Edition
Tracy Ruckel joined Community Impact in January of 2019 shortly after the launch of the Richardson, TX edition and has helped oversee its ascent to becoming an integral part of the city.
With a long sales background that includes working with schools, charities and companies, small and large on marketing campaigns and strategies as well as fund raising, Tracy is uniquely positioned to oversee this growth and manage a diverse team of individuals with different skill sets and responsibilities.
Community Impact News was founded in Pflugerville, TX in 2005 by John and Jennifer Garrett. Since that time, the company has
enjoyed enormous growth that now includes 40 markets total in the Austin, DFW, Houston, and San Antonio metros.
As part of their mission, Community Impact mails their paper monthly to every residence and they report on news that is hyper-local and useful. Most importantly, Community Impact provides needed content in each community that serve, that in many cases, readers cannot find anywhere else. This is achieved by having reporters attend every city council and school board meeting to provide coverage.
