Maggie Cassidy is the web editor at the Valley News, an award-winning daily newspaper (circulation 14,000) and website (1.3 million hits monthly) serving 46 towns in Vermont and New Hampshire. She joined the Valley News as a news reporter in January 2012 and became the paper’s first full-time web editor in October 2015.
Her wide-ranging reporting career, started in 2005, has taken her from the Red Sox locker room to mule rides down the world’s steepest sea cliffs; from crime scenes and courtrooms to the skies over Vermont.
As web editor, she oversees www.vnews.com, including breaking news, video, multimedia and social media. In 2017, she co-launched UV INDEX, the Valley News’ sister site geared toward digital readers, injecting humor and charm into its Upper Valley news coverage.
She has a deep appreciation for newsrooms, from working full-time internships in the big (The Boston Globe) and the tiny (The Molokai Dispatch) and spending much of her childhood hanging around her local newspaper in Framingham, Mass., where her dad was an editor.
