A consummate community journalist

Cathryn Keefe O'Hare

Best wishes to Cathryn Keefe O’Hare, who’s leaving the Danvers Herald, where she has been editor for the past 10 years. I can’t find her farewell editorial online, but in the print edition she writes:

It has been a privilege to work here. I have learned so much, and I have had so much fun through the years. I have helped some of you, I think. I hope I have explained some issues fairly well. In any case, I know you have enriched my life with patience when I’ve been obtuse and offered gracious acceptance of my nosy ways.

In 2008, Cathryn let me tag along and learn about Web video. You can see the results here. Cathryn is a consummate community journalist, and she will be missed by those of us who live in Danvers.

    Thanks, Dan. I guess I forgot to post my last editorial! But, thanks for your kind words.

    I’ll never forget our conversation outside a particularly awful fatal accident in Danvers. Nice lady. I wish her well. =)

  3. Best wishes, Cathryn, on your transition, and thank you for all your support and encouragement. You truly have been the wind beneath my wings.
