Former Courant writer Fran Silverman has changed jobs, as you can see from Bobbie Roessner’s announcement below.
So now, in her new venture, Fran needs writers:
I am moving on from the CT Post/ Hearst (see announcement below). Though I had a great time as Metro Editor working with Bobbie who had just arrived, and my staff of reporters, I had another appealing job offer that I decided to take.
I have started working at truthinadvertising.org, a new national nonprofit consumer oriented news site based in Madison, CT as the editor of the site.
We are looking for a reporter and freelancers who can help us keep the website updated by writing news stories that explore deceptive marketing and false advertisements. We are going to go after a wide array of stories from Facebook and privacy and marketing to escort ads.
We are seeking freelancers with an expertise in such subjects as technology and finance/ banking and someone who is interested in a reporting position where they will update the site with stories each day and work on longer term investigative articles. Anyone interested can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
The site will be live in a few weeks.
After two years of extraordinary work at Hearst Connecticut Newspapers, Metro Editor Fran Silverman is leaving the Connecticut Post. Her leadership, her editing skill, her commitment to journalistic excellence will be terribly missed. But her contribution will surely continue as her colleagues, especially reporters with whom she has worked so closely, carry forth the lessons Fran taught them: Think big. Don’t settle. Dig deep, and write your heart out.
Fran will be moving to an online consumer news service, a Connecticut-based startup with national focus and ambitions.
