Two weeks ago I tendered my resignation at The Journal News — today was my last official day on the job.
I want to thank all of you (maybe I should say the vast majority of you instead) for making the past six months extremely enjoyable. I have gotten to know many of you (coaches, parents and players) over this time, and am a better person and reporter as a result. At times, some of you can be tough, but I can truly say that I’m leaving the Journal News with the utmost respect and admiration for the community surrounding the area’s girls high school basketball. I would also like to thank my colleague, The Great Rob Cristino, for helping me out with this beat. I am leaving you guys in great hands.
I encourage all of you to stay in touch. I don’t think it would be appropriate for me to talk about what I’m doing next on this blog (you can find that, along with ways to contact me, through the magic powers of Google), but I will still be interested in the local basketball scene.
Lastly, I want to reassure all of you* that even though I am leaving before the Journal News Player of the Year and All Stars story gets published (it will be in the paper on April 14), the choices will still be, for the most part, mine. (Rockland is me, Westchester/Putnam is Rob).
*I acknowledge that those of you who are not my biggest fans might not feel so reassured upon hearing this news. Oh well.
Thank you all again,
