Chris Peabody, Sales Representative

Serving the businesses of Cranston & Johnston


As one of the newest members of the Beacon Communications sales team, there are two things that Chris Peabody is passionate about: the people of Cranston and Johnston and the opportunity she now has to represent them as business owners in our ever-evolving state. 

If you want to knw what is happening in these communities, then just ask this enthusiastic supporter of small businesses and the newest sales representative at this longstanding publishing company. Chris just lights up when talking about her experiences working with, advocating for, and shopping at the local businesses throughout her designated areas of Cranston and Johnston.  As a lifelong Rhode Islander, she has a deep respect and appreciation for the businesses of these towns, but also for the residents who patronize them. It is now her privilege to give them a visible presence in these mainstay, local newspapers.

Chris Peabody takes her work at the Herald and SunRise seriously, even as she lives a full and active life.  An avid gardener, golfer, Patriots fan, Rhode Island Special Olympics volunteer, wife and mother, Chris is always out meeting people, exploring the diverse neighborhoods of the West Bay, and cheering on the people and places that make Rhode Island so unique.

Chris came to the Johnston SunRise and the Cranston Herald in March of this year following the retirement of her predecessor, Natalie Payette.  She has come in with a bang, drawing upon a long career in customer relations in the news media and marketing. She is full of energy, ideas, and personality ~ and is eager to get to know small business owners from every corner of these towns and cities.  As she says: “I want to help businesses succeed!”

If you are a business owner in Johnston or Cranston, a great place to start is to look at newspapers such as the Herald and the SunRise.  They have a broad readership and an online presence.  They tell the stories of the towns’ residents and of the many services they provide and products they sell. They are the heartbeat of our communities, acting like the “town crier” of days past but with photographs and updated stories of the day-to-day lives of their inhabitants.

Chris can help you get the word out about your business ~ no matter what your line of work or business is.  There is an advertisement space and budget just for you! When you are ready to advertise in one of these papers, she will walk you through every step of the process, laying out every available option from the smallest one column, 2” ad to a full-page ad ~ and everything in between (including this business spotlight page!)

Give Chris a call today at 401-732-3100 or her cell at 401-714-5699.  You can also email her at Today is the day to get started!
