Am I a good fit to become your new influencing partner?

Kevin Haas is a respected local journalist whose feature stories on local businesses have helped introduce entrepreneurs to thousands of new customers. Subjects of his stories often tell him how a customer approached them a day after the story published to say they learned about the business from the Rock River Current.

Haas has been telling Rockford's stories for more than two decades with insightful, in depth and occasionally light-hearted stories. He has the rare mix of diving deep into data to uncover murky municipal finances one day and delight with stories that track down the subjects of decade-old memes the next. Kevin was named the Rockford Chamber of Commerce's 2023 "Class Clown" for his ability to infuse humor into his work.
