A message from the Connecticut News Project’s Board of Directors

Thanks to Michael Regan

The Board of Directors expresses its gratitude to Michael Regan for his essential role in launching the Connecticut News Project. His work as founding editor has been critically important in building the firm foundation of this news site. His reputation and editorial efforts, along with the reporting of CT Mirror’s accomplished news team, brought both immediate credibility and long-term respect to the new enterprise.

We wish him the very best in his future journalistic endeavors.

Welcome to Jenifer Frank

Our new Chief Editorial Officer, Jenifer Frank, will take the post November 14. Ms. Frank is leaving her position as the Night City Editor of The Day in New London to join CT Mirror.

Prior to joining The Day in 2010, Ms. Frank worked at the Hartford Courant in multiple positions, including – most recently – as the Deputy Metro Editor. From 2006 to 2008, Ms. Frank was the Courant’s Politics/Government Editor, for five years was editor of Northeast (the Courant’s Sunday magazine) and – for the five years before that – the Courant’s Page 1 News Editor.

Raised in Stamford and now a resident of West Hartford, Ms. Frank graduated from Trinity College with a BA in English. Her training has included the Times-Mirror Leadership Institute and the Nieman Conference on Narrative Writing.

Ms. Frank co-authored Complicity: How the North Promoted, Prolonged, and Profited from Slavery (Ballantine/Random House, 2005), a book that is included in the curriculum of a number of colleges and universities. Her three special magazine issues exploring the state’s role in slavery were ordered by the Connecticut Department of Education for distribution in the state’s middle schools, high schools, and community colleges.
