A long-time fixture in the Lowell media scene, Teddy Panos founded InsideLowell, a 21st century multi-media company shaped by his over 30-year career in television, radio, newspaper, digital and social media.
Panos most recently capped a nearly 15-year run as Host of the Morning Drive Show on 980WCAP-AM, where he became a go-to source for local news and information. Whether breaking major news stories or securing interviews with newsmakers ranging from Presidential candidates and members of the U.S. Congress to local officials and community figures, he could be counted on to tell the story behind the story through his unique style and humor.
Prior to radio, Panos authored the first ever blog for the Lowell Sun newspaper, while also penning a weekly column. Before that, he was a 2-time award winning Sports Anchor/Reporter for WNDS-TV in Derry, NH, a station carried on over 2-million cable households throughout New England. Teddy got his start in television and media working as a Sports Producer at WHDH-TV in Boston from 1992-1999. Panos holds a Master’s Degree in Mass Communication from Emerson College and a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management from UMass-Lowell. He is a graduate of Dracut High School.
When not busy covering the local scene, Panos helps manage his family restaurant in Downtown Lowell and does fundraising for the Megan House Foundation. In his free time, he enjoys spending time and sharing laughs with friends and family. The moments he cherishes most, however, are those spent with his wife Rylee and their beautiful children Ari Stavros and Ruby Alexandra.
Why Teddy Founded InsideLowell:
“I’ve long felt there was a need for a media platform in Lowell that combines all aspects of Mass Communication. InsideLowell is my vision of that platform. With contributions from a talented and dedicated team of Insiders, we will inform, entertain and engage the audience by providing inside access to the people and events that shape our community.”

When Danielle isn’t in the office, you can see her grabbing a cup of coffee in Downtown Lowell, dancing on Instagram or hanging out with her family.
Why Danielle joined Inside Lowell?
“Inside Lowell is exactly what Lowell needs. It’s not only a source for information and entertainment, but it’s also a way for us all to feel connected – to each other and our community. Lowell is such a unique place and I am excited to help showcase everything that makes it a great place to live, work, raise a family and have a little fun!”

Why Jim Joined InsideLowell:
“What’s not to like about InsideLowell? Teddy is taking this digital experience to the moon and I want be onboard for the ride. Maybe there are vineyards on the dark side of moon. Who knows? Seriously, it’s a great opportunity to breathe new life and spirit into Lowell with other fine contributors. If you like wine, or are curious about it, InsideLowell.com is the place to be.”

Dan Phelps was born and raised – and still lives in – Lowell.
While in his third year at UMass Lowell, he was hired by The Sun to be a sportswriter. Over the next 36 years, he went on to hold several different titles, leaving the newspaper in 2021 as the Community News Editor.
In August 2021, Dan became the Economic Development Project Planner for the Town of Dracut, helping to promote and market the business community, as well as attracting new businesses to town.
As part of InsideLowell, Dan will share news of positive developments happening InsideDracut.
Why Dan joined InsideLowell:
“Teddy is the perfect person to launch this venture. When he asked me to participate, I jumped at the chance to let folks know about the exciting developments happening in Dracut.”
Patrick Cook is the Vice-President of Administration at Middlesex Community College and a lifelong Lowellian.
He started his career as a police reporter at the Lowell Sun and went on to roles as Communications Director for the Lowell Police Department and District Director for U.S. Congressman Marty Meehan before his current gig.

In his youth, Pat was a regular at Lowell fixtures such as Palmer News, the Dutch Tea Room, O-Ray-O restaurant, Page’s soda fountain, the Yum Yum Shop and the Giant Store lunch counter.
Why Patrick joined Inside Lowell:
“I grew up in Lowell and have raised my family here, and care deeply about the history, present, and future of the city. There’s an infinite amount of stories the emanate from this city and its neighbors, and we need to do whatever we can to chronicle those stories and celebrate what makes this area so unique. I’m really looking forward to connecting and re-connecting with folks through this much needed and welcomed platform on Inside Lowell.”
Soumita Acharya, an Indian immigrant, is a media professional and community advocate who specializes in producing and directing documentaries, advertisements, televison shows, live broadcasting of concerts and events, music videos, short films, storytelling, and local journalism.
Soumita is a huge supporter of non-profits, artists and local economies. She fell in love with Lowell, its diversity, its art and most importantly, its people, becoming a resident of Downtown in 2011.
She co-founded Project Starfish in 2012 to create contemporary employment for the blind and visually impaired. Project Starfish built the world’s first experiential platform that transformed over 300 blind individuals in 8 countries. Soumita was also the former Director for Community programs for Lowell Telecommunications.
She currently serves as a Board Members on Girls Inc. of Greater Lowell and Mosaic Lowell. Previously, Soumita was a Board member for the city’s Sustainability Council, UMass-Lowell Greely Scholar for Peace Studies and the Alliance for Community Media (ACM) National Board.

Why Soumita Joined InsideLowell:
“I see this new venture as a way to keep our diversity, culture and local journalism alive.”
Mike Bacigalupo, more commonly known around the city as Bach, is a product of Lowell’s Christian Hill neighborhood and Lowell Public Schools.
He began his media career in radio, making occasional appearances on WCAP’s Morning Drive Show with InsideLowell Founder Teddy Panos in 2017. Due to popular demand, those appearances became more frequent and soon he was Co-Hosting the Asa and Bach Show, aka “The Power Hour” from 2019-2022. His inside knowledge of the city, combined with a razor-sharp wit, make his writing as entertaining a read as you’ll find on the local media scene. His “Beers with Bach” podcasts highlight members of the community in a way that brings their personality to the surface.
In “real life,” Bach has been active in local politics and civic organizations. His nearly 25-year career focuses mostly in the non-profit sector, formerly in program management and currently in fiscal and budgeting matters.
He brings a unique perspective on the local and national scene, realizing that ultimately there is humor in everything, nothing is really that serious, and if it’s not fun, it’s not worth doing. As an example, Bach sees his greatest contribution has been his commitment to the planet and the future by remaining childless.
He currently resides in North Chelmsford, which he insists is not really Chelmsford.
Why Bach joined InsideLowell:
“Bach joined InsideLowell because he believes providing the public information and opinions from a myriad of people is key to a healthy community. Plus, who wouldn’t want to hear the opinions and musing of a middle aged white guy from Christian Hill.”
Having proved that you can take the girl out of Lowell, but cannot, in fact, take the Lowell out of the girl, Allison Dolan-Wilson lived in Southern California for 16 years before returning to her birthplace.
Allison is currently Vice President of Institutional Advancement and Executive Director of the NECC Foundation at Northern Essex Community College in Haverhill and Lawrence, where she oversees fundraising, marketing and communications, alumni relations, stewardship, grants, workforce development and corporate relations, career services, and institutional effectiveness.
An alumna of Saint Michael Elementary School and Lowell High, Allison holds a degree in PR and Advertising from Emerson College. She worked as a publicist in Hollywood for several years before turning to a career in higher education, including roles at San Diego State University (where she received her MBA), University of California—Irvine, and MIT.
A fourth generation Lowellian born and raised in the city’s Centralville neighborhood, Allison’s contributions to InsideLowell focus on strong women and the amazing work they do in the Mill City. Adding to her credentials as one of those strong women, she recently completed the LEADS program, an economic and leadership development program our of Harvard Business School with leaders from Lowell, Lawrence, and Haverhill.
Allison comes from a large family and currently lives with her husband, Jeff (who still isn’t sure why she insists on constantly introducing herself as originally from Centralville) and her two kids, Liam and Maggie. You can often catch her being a tourist in her own city.
Why Allison joined InsideLowell:
“There is something in the place where we were born that holds us always by the heart-strings.” – Lucy Larcom, Lowell Mill Girl
Do you like counting City Council motions? Then Citizens, have I got a treat for you!
In late 2021, I found myself thinking of the glory-days of the Lowell blogosphere – a place where you could find interesting, homegrown Lowell content almost daily. However, most of the blogs had long since closed shop and social media wasn’t quite hitting the spot in the same way. I kept hoping someone would start posting long-form content about the comings and goings of the Lowell City Council (Dick Howe had yet to launch his weekly newsletter).
As such, I tried to create the thing that I wished existed. TheLowellCitizen.com launched in January of 2022 with an eye toward keeping the old-school-blog-candle burning. Almost every Wednesday morning since, I’ve been providing a recap of the previous night’s council meeting mixed with some half-assed analysis and opinion.
Traffic counts for my site varied, but over time, it began to feel like I was posting into a void. My wife would sometimes ask if I was “still doing that blog thing.” My plan was to finish up the year, thank the loyal readers who came for the ride, and join the list of defunct Lowell blogs.
Enter a breath of fresh air from InsideLowell. I admit, I groaned a bit when I saw that Teddy Panos was the man behind the curtain. Would this new venture be a megaphone for his WCAP positions? Positions that made my blood boil and liberal tears flow? Maybe? It’s still early after all. But so far, I see evidence to the contrary.
I see the potential for InsideLowell to fill the void in local news. I see a return to the daily doses of homegrown, Lowell-centric content that I can’t get enough of. I see some contributors on the roster that I know and/or respect. I see a need for more contributors who actually, you know, live in Lowell (zing!). In light of the above, I am honored to have been invited to contribute and am looking forward sharing my posts on this platform.
Finally, some biography may be in order – I am not a journalist, nor am I an “Insider” as I understand the term. I’m just some nut with a website who feels compelled to post content. I was born and raised in Centralville (or perhaps more accurately, the foot of Christian Hill – it’s open to debate). I’ve lived in Downtown, the Highlands, and currently Belvidere with my wife and two sons. Both of my kids proudly attend Lowell Public Schools. When I’m not engaged with this blogging nonsense, I find some time to be a lawyer. If you see me in public, I will not be prepared to defend anything that I’ve written.
Tara Hong immigrated from Cambodia in 2013. He graduated from Lowell Public Schools in 2018 and the University of Massachusetts Lowell in 2022, majoring in political science and minoring in criminal justice.
Community involvement is an important part of who Tara is, having worked or volunteered for the past few years for Lowell Public Schools, the Cambodian Mutual Assistance Association (CMAA) and the Lowell Litter Krewe. He’s also served on the Board of Directors for Lowell Litter Krewe and Mill City Grows.
Tara’s goal is to find ways of bringing the community together, encouraging Lowell residents to get involved, especially through voting, and to be informed about what the city has done for all of us.
As Inside Lowell launches, it gives me pause to reflect on how the city of Lowell and UMass Lowell have shaped my personal and professional development. Growing up in Billerica, going to Lowell was always an adventure. I remember hiding from my mother in the clothing racks at Jordan Marsh (Bon Marche to the old timers!), my dad was in the trades, and I fondly remember trips to Harmon’s Paint with him to get supplies. As a family, we would go and watch the ULowell Chiefs play at the Tully Forum. I was one of the first elementary school classes to take a field trip to the Lowell National Park. I learned to swim and scuba dive at the Boys and Girls Club. As I got older, and got a car, I would venture into Lowell alone. I played basketball at the YMCA, Shed Park, or wherever I could find a game. In my late teens, I would go down Bullseye Boxing Gym in the Acre, or late night at Santoro’s for pizza. Or just drive around downtown. These days I am at the university most every day, I still love driving through the city. I love my office. It is debatably has one of the best views in the city. I have always marveled at the depth of history and culture in Lowell. Every first weekend of the month, you can find me at Western Ave Studios, and I love grabbing coffee at Brewed Awakenings or breakfast at Owl.
Lowell held a similar gravity on my professional development as well. I worked in the software industry in the 90s and 00s. During that period, I earned an MBA at UMass Lowell. As an MBA student, myself and two other students started a toy company, The Imagination Factory. We sold toys to Walgreens, Caldor’s, Hills, The Learning Company, and other toy retailers. It would not have been possible without the faculty and staff at UML. They gave us space, guidance, some seed funding, and countless lab hours to bring our toys to life. After a couple of years, we went bankrupt, but it was still a great learning experience.
After I left the software industry to pursue a PhD, my Lowell experience shaped my research. I study industry and organizational decline, innovation, and renewal. I still have a copy of “Riding the Runaway Horse” a book that details the rise and fall of Wang Labs on my shelf at the university. When we think about local Merrimack Valley companies like Wang, Digital, Apollo, and Data General, we cannot help but think about how Lowell seems to rise and fall with the fate of its industries, whether they be textiles or minicomputers. I cannot help but drive around the city and look at the old mills and think about what they must have been like in their hay day, and their decline. My research has been published in the top journals in the field, MIT Sloan Management Review, Harvard Business Review, and others. It has also been cited in local and national media outlets, such as WFTX-TV, NECN, MSNBC, Boston Business Journal, Entrepreneur Magazine, Mass High Tech, and Boston Globe and the Lowell Sun. My work was the basis for being included in the film “We the People” that detailed the Market Basket crisis.
Yet, I am most proud of the work I do at the university to impact the city and surrounding community. When I returned to UMass Lowell in 2009, it was my way of giving back to a city and university that has given so much to me. I love being in the classroom with UML students, they are the hardest working young adults. I am privileged to be part of their journey. In addition, I am also lucky to work with some of the best faculty and staff around. They care about the students, the community, and the city – that is a rare thing. In the past decade, I have also been incredibly involved with economic and workforce development in the region. Most notably, since 2009 I have been an executive board member at the M2D2, the life science incubator on Canal Street. As part of the leadership team, I helped lead the incubator from a dungy basement space the old Wannalancit Mill to a modern facility that houses 40 startup companies
Why Scott Joined InsideLowell:
“As Tip O’Neill famously said, “All politics is local.” I have the same perspective on business. As part of the Inside Lowell team, I will offer an unvarnished perspective on the business landscape in the country, region, and most importantly the city. Occasionally, I might offer thoughts on higher education, given the university’s importance to the city. For better or worse, the city and university have a shared fate.”
Born and raised in Lowell, Matt’s roots run deep in the city. He’s a proud graduate of Lowell High School, class of 97, and father of three beautiful Lowell Public School students.
After graduating from UMass-Amherst in 01’, his early career saw him work in the sports industry for the Golden State Warriors and Lowell Lock Monsters, banking industry, and as the executive director of the New England Service Station and Automotive Repair Association (NESSARA). These various roles help Matt gain a strong understanding of business, finance and government affairs. All helped lead to Matt opening his own company, Association Merchant Services in 2014. That company has grown to become one of the largest merchant services providers in New England. In 2019 he created KDE Consulting to provide small business consulting services to a select number of clients. Through KDE, Matt has gained experience in real estate, retail marijuana and other industries.
If you’re looking to find Matt outside the office, you will most likely find him at a baseball field or involved in some youth athletics activity. He is the President of the Pawtucketville Youth Organization, Head of the Friends of Lowell High Field Hockey Committee, Chairman of the Lowell Athletics and Activity Foundation, Coach in the Boomerball Baseball Program, amongst other things.
Matt’s passion for making the city better through youth athletics and activities will be the main source of his contributions to the Inside Lowell team. After an unsuccessful run for City Council in 2017, he’ll leave the politics to the professionals.
Why Matt Joined InsideLowell:
“I joined the Inside Lowell team to raise awareness of the amazing athletic and artistic accomplishments of the youth of Lowell. These kids are a fantastic source of pride and connection for our Community. As adults, we should champion their successes and provide support where we can to make things better.”

In 2012, he published his first book, “Can I Be Frank?: An Auto-BLOG-raphy,” a humorous read that is a compilation of his blog columns about life, family, sports and the workplace. Frank has written a screenplay titled ‘St. Patrick’s Day’; a comedy loosely based on actual events that occurred in the Mill City. In addition to his writing projects, he hosted the Can I Be Frank radio talk show on 980 WCAP from 2013- 2015.
A graduate of the College of the Holy Cross, Frank serves as Vice President of Marketing & Communications for The Beacon Group and List Logistics. Born, raised, and educated in Lowell, he remains active in the greater Lowell community and various local charities and organizations.
Frank resides in North Andover with his wife and three children.
Why Frank joined InsideLowell:
“If I can be Frank, Inside Lowell is a great opportunity for me to be able to express ideas, tell stories and speak and write freely in an exciting new platform that our region has never seen before. This will not be your father’s news outlet.”
Mikaela Hondros-McCarthy grew up, and currently lives in, the Highlands neighborhood of Lowell. She went to the Hellenic American Academy, Saint Stanislaus School and Lowell High before going on to earn accounting degrees and MBA from UMass Amherst and UMass Boston.
Mikaela has 15 years of experience in finance and accounting, working in both the for and non-profit sectors. She has worked for the last five years at her dream job for Green Energy Consumers Alliance where she oversees the finance operations and procurement of renewable energy. She has served on the Lowell Sustainability Council for the last five years and is passionate about helping the city make progress in that area. (Mikaela would like to make it clear her thoughts and opinions are her own and not a representation of the organizations she works at or volunteers on unless otherwise stated)
In her free time, you can find Mikaela walking her dog Sasha or biking on the Riverwalk or the Freeman Trail, trying out a new recipe or food shopping at Trader Joe’s or Market Basket, watching a documentary or reality TV (there is no in-between), or enjoying good conversation, food & drinks at one of the many great restaurants in Downtown Lowell. Her favorite things to talk about are sustainability & energy, pop culture, excel formula hacks, existential life stuff, food, and any and all things Bravo TV.
Why Mikaela joined InsideLowell:
“I joined InsideLowell to continue both a major life struggle and a dream that began unexpectedly a few years ago during my first appearance on WCAP-AM radio: to convince Teddy Panos that climate change is real, man-made, and that humans can and must do something to curb its effects. I further committed to this challenge by becoming co-host of the Morning Show on a weekly basis, and when I wasn’t experiencing extreme frustration, I was invigorated by the respectful and though-provoking conversations. It is my intent to continue that dialogue on InsideLowell.”
Jack Mitchell has been jousting with the establishment media and political power brokers since the early days of the NH Primary in 2007. As a grassroots activist with “Veterans for Obama,” Mitchell sharpened his new media edges skirmishing on a prominent NH Blog against other activists and “machine Democrats.” The quick-witted banter, mixed with memes and pop culture references, appealed to Mitchell’s sensibilities. The skills he developed over that campaign translated well to the blossoming new media scene in Lowell.
By 2009, new media venues in Lowell were seriously challenging the dominance of legacy media. The “movers and shakers” had predictable dynamics with the Paper of Record and the local AM Radio station. The variety of perspectives and personalities of Lowell’s Bloggers did not neatly mesh with the narratives and frames that where being spun and pushed out to Lowellians. Mitchell thrived in this environment and, over a decade, has carefully stumbled his way into becoming a dreaded establishment figure in his own right.
Jack has listened intently as influencers harkened the steady demise of print media. Further, he noted the limits of blogging, with a scourge of anonymous trash talkers. So, Mitchell translated his voice over to Social Media, seeing the potential of Facebook as a tool to organize and influence.
Why Jack joined InsideLowell:
“My journey through the new forms of media that sprouted up in Lowell has been a trip, since Day 1 and I am now looking forward to sharing in the responsibilities of opining and informing Lowellians, as part of the InsideLowell team.”
Ryan Rourke has called Lowell home his entire life. Hailing from the Highlands (Lower Highlands… District 6 in today’s new school verbiage), he now resides in Belvidere with his amazing wife Meghan, his two (and soon to be three) smart and talented daughters, Shayla and Paige and his less talented dog, Hamilton.
Ryan’s day job has been in the insurance industry for 23 years, with the ultimate goal of helping employers navigate the murky waters of healthcare. Tom Brady’s backup career was insurance sales, ergo he feels he’s one level away from NFL quarterback.
His real passion, however, is community service. Ryan has been involved in youth sports as a baseball coach and now softball coach for 26 years and counting. He has been on the board of the Highland Sports Association for as long as he can remember, serving as Board President for the last several. He was a founding member of Greater Lowell Senior League Baseball and is excited to be a part of the first true citywide baseball and softball entity, the Lowell Youth Athletic Association.
Ryan is also the vice chair of the City of Lowell Board of Parks, where he has been a member for 10 years and is now a member of the Community Preservation Committee. His latest volunteer role is as a Board Member of the Jack Kerouac Foundation. The Foundation’s lofty, but attainable initial objective is to transform a dormant cathedral into a world-class museum and performance center.
Ryan’s other passion is local politics and culminated by just coming up short on his bid for District 4 City Councilor. It was a great experience that he doesn’t regret and definitely has left the door open for future campaigns. Having his very own baby to kiss in 2023 is a good start.
Why Ryan joined InsideLowell:
“I am honored to be a part of such an amazing group of thought leaders. I love the disruptive nature of InsideLowell and hope to contribute to its success. Kerouac once said “Great things are not accomplished by those who yield to trends and fads and popular opinion.” Let’s keep pushing the envelope fellow Insiders!”
