    If God dropped acid, would he see people? Bridget Petrella, CEO of Nite Owl Productions, Ltd., is a highly successful magazine publisher, web designer, nationally published cartoonist, illustrator and syndicated columnist, radio talk show host and personal publicist to numerous high profile clients. In July of 1997, she began publishing UPBEAT Entertainment News Online, a witty, cool celebrity-driven entertainment news publication with a light-hearted philosophical twist. UPBEAT began as a relatively small publication with a circulation of just over 35,000. It was distributed throughout the cities of Pittsburgh, Cleveland and parts of New York. UPBEAT Entertainment News Online is currently being published and syndicated online via Comtex News Service, iSyndicate and YellowBrix and has since expanded its readership to well over 25 million subscribers in both daily and weekly news wire feeds.
