We are very excited to announce the hire of Christopher McDermott as staff reporter at CT Examiner. Chris joins senior reporter Cate Hewitt and staff reporter Julia Werth.
His hiring marks a deepening commitment by CT Examiner to covering the towns of Essex, Deep River, Old Saybrook, and East Lyme, and an added emphasis on capturing more voices from the business community.
Chris comes to the Examiner after writing for Manchester’s Journal Inquirer and for the weekly Berkshire Record in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. He also worked as news editor for the Daily Campus while completing a degree in English at the University of Connecticut.
If you see Chris in a meeting or on the street, please introduce yourself and welcome him to the community.
