A longtime veteran of daily newspapers in Maryland, including The Capital in Annapolis and The Herald-Mail in Hagerstown, I joined The Gazette papers as the editor of the Frederick edition in July of 2012. There has never been a more challenging time for newspapers, nor a more rewarding one, as technology has changed how community news reaches more readers than ever before. Although the platforms have changed for delivering that information, the importance of effective local story-telling has remained the same.
