Just wanted to offer a quick note of congratulations to Jason Kandel, who's moving over from Valley News to cover breaking news for Dailynews.com. He's covered everything from heinous crime to fun neighborhood features and played an instrumental role along with Eugene in making the East of the 5 blog a great read. No matter his assignment, he's always had boundless enthusiasm and energy-- which will serve him well as he begins the grind at 5:30 to start updating the site.
This is an important job as we keep improving dailynews.com, one that will hopefully draw more and more eyes in coming months. Let's keep our own eyes on what all he comes up with and learn from it-- we're going to need to to stay alive in this business.
So well done, Mr. Kandel, and congratulations. You've definitely earned this job through hard work.
