After three years as editor-in-chief, Melanie Graham announced today that she’s leaving the Newton Patch. Melanie has been the editor of Newton’s Patch since it’s founding. The Patch on-line local news site in each town is largely a one person show. So here in Newton, Melanie Graham IS the Newton Patch.
She landed here three years ago and dug in, quickly learned the politics, the businesses, the personalities and then cranked out nearly 5000 articles on all of them. In a short time, she turned the Newton Patch into an important resource for the whole city.
We welcome Brooklyn Lowery, the incoming editor and wish her all the best. She’s got a tough job ahead because those are some big shoes to fill.
