   Bruce William Deckert is the publisher and editor-in-chief of Today Publishing. He embarked on his professional media career in 1996 — including 17 years with and ESPN Digital Media, and a productive run as a newspaper editor and reporter for the Journal Register Company aka JRC. ​


     In 2018 Bruce ​established Today Publishing — this mini media outlet produces Today Magazine, our monthly publication, and Today Online, our digital news site​. 


     A Connecticut resident for three-plus decades, Bruce lived in Simsbury for a quarter-century — so he appreciates the distinctiveness and history and aesthetic appeal of this amazing state and the Farmington Valley. Bruce began his post-college journalism career at the Post — not the New York or Washington outfits, but the Wethersfield Post in Connecticut. The Post was part of the former Imprint Newspapers group that produced distinct weekly papers for four Valley towns and seven other towns in Greater Hartford. 


     So his career in the media realm has come full circle — from hyper-local community-based journalism to the Worldwide Leader In Sports and back to community journalism — and he has felt invigorated, at intervals, by this vocational geometric convergence. 


     An award-winning journalist born in Newark, New Jersey, Bruce was raised in Bloomfield and Plainfield — to clarify, the Bloomfield and Plainfield in Jersey, not their namesakes in Connecticut. His first news job? Star-Ledger paperboy — yes, the Star-Ledger based in Newark. He graduated from Plainfield High School and Massachusetts-based Gordon College. From kindergarten through college, he attended church at Willow — not Willow Creek, the megachurch in Illinois, but the more modest Willow Grove Presbyterian in good old Jersey.
