MEET THE PUBLISHER
Bruce William Deckert is Today Magazine's publisher and editor-in-chief. An award-winning journalist, Bruce has worked in the media realm since 1996, including 17 years as an editor for ESPN.com and a productive run as a newspaper editor and reporter in Connecticut.
A five-time SPJ award-winner, he has been a resident of Simsbury since 1995 — so he appreciates the distinctiveness and history and aesthetic appeal of the Farmington Valley. Born in Newark,
New Jersey, Bruce was raised in Bloomfield and Plainfield — to clarify, the Bloomfield and Plainfield in New Jersey, not their namesakes in Connecticut. His first news job? Star-Ledger paperboy.
He graduated from Gordon College (Wenham, Mass.) and Plainfield (N.J.) High School.
Bruce began his post-college journalism career at the Post — not the New York or Washington outfits, but the Wethersfield Post in Connecticut. The Wethersfield Post was part of the former Imprint Newspapers group that produced weekly papers for most Valley towns and other towns
in Greater Hartford.
