Journal Register Company -- the parent company of the Troy Record and the Saratogian -- announced yesterday that Jim Brady, who formerly headed up the Washington Post's website, will be JRC's editor-in-chief and will "directly oversee all newsgathering operations." After emerging from bankruptcy in 2009, JRC has been pushing to make its publications "digital first." Brady had been involved with that push after coming over from TBD, the ambitious local news startup in the DC area that fizzled after its parent company, Albritton, lost its nerve on the project earlier this year (Brady had left earlier because of differences with ownership).
We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up.
