About this blog

 A bit of background

I’ve been editor of the York (Pa.) Daily Record/Sunday News for 11 years and managing editor for 15 years before that. So, York Town Square explores the rapidly changing world of journalism.

And I studied York/Adams’ history in graduate school, have written or co-written seven books about these fascinating southcentral Pennsylvania counties and serve on the York County (Pa.) Heritage Trust board. So, this blog deals with regional history.

Often, journalism and history meet here. They’re part of a continuum anyway. My hope is that this site intrigues readers on both accounts in giving a daily dose of journalism/history. Or history/journalism.

Also of interest:

I also post regular on topics relating to the York Daily Record/Sunday News on the YDR Insider blog.
