Vice President and Publisher, Capital Region Independent Media, Clifton Park, New York First job in news: Telemarketer for Gannett Suburban Newspapers in White Plains, New York. What are some of the most important lessons you have learned while working in news? We work for a product that has been one of the most important brands/businesses in our local market. When you reflect on your career to date, what brings you the greatest sense of accomplishment? Making those people that poured into my career proud — especially my parents. What are your predictions for where news publishing/news media is heading? We must ensure we remain essential enough that people are willing to support us financially. We also need to give people what they can’t get elsewhere — local news. We need to be the company/business/ partner in the community that always reaches out to them.
