Former Courant sports copy editor Reid Walmark sends this update:
New job. Hired by Courant alumnus Jim Doody as sports editor of the Fairfield Citizen, part of Brooks Community Newspapers which are in the Hearst Connecticut Media Group.
Began job Tuesday. In addition to those duties, helping out with high school sports coverage for the Connecticut Post. Asked to paginate the Citizen sports section, cover games, author a blog and tweet at games, as well as periodically supplying photos.
Had been on Universal Desk for the dailies (Post, Danbury News-Times, Stamford Advocate, Greenwich Time) in a part-time role since August 2012, working alongside former Courant news copy editor Ted Funsten.
It’s been 30 years since I was last sports editor of weeklies in Fairfield County!
