Hail To The Editor In Chief
Today is Tony Dearing's last day on the job as AnnArbor.com's editor in chief. I'll miss him dearly as he moves on to a new role in New Jersey. And I'll always be proud of what we've accomplished at AnnArbor.com these past three years. Tony and I go back a handful of years. While I was in college, he gave me my first start at a daily newsroom as an intern at The Bay City Times. I later was hired on full-time at The Times, and in 2009 I jumped at the chance to continue my career as AnnArbor.com launched with Tony at the helm. From the start, it was a team effort, and it was input from countless people that shaped the site into what it is today, the top website in the nation for market penetration. We've built a loyal audience and I'm proud of the content we put out day after day. We're losing a key member of our team, but we'll march on with the values Tony instilled in us through his constant professionalism and journalistic integrity.
