MEET THE PUBLISHER
Bruce Deckert is an award-winning journalist who has worked in the media realm since 1996, including 15-plus years as an editor at 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 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 (Conn.) Post.
