A third media luminary has been hired by Senator Patty Ritchie, meaning the freshman lawmaker could open her own newsroom.
Newzjunky's Tim Scee will start at the Senator's Watertown office on Wednesday according to a source. He will be handling constituent issues.
Mr. Scee was the front line reporter for Newzjunky, covering local government and doing feature stories. His work augmented Newzjunky's core product of linked stories, press releases and official documents.
Channel 7's Sarah Compo recently went to work for Senator Ritchie and former Ogdensburg Journal Editor Jim Reagen also works there.
The lure of the womb of public employment is strong for those in local media.
Tim Scee did a good job of reporting and made the market more competitive.
