McGowan headed to from GoLocalProv

Dec 24, 2012

Kudos and congrats to Dan McGowan, news editor at GoLocalProv, who is headed to a new gig writing for the Web site of WPRI.

McGowan has emerged as one of the best young reporters in Rhode Island, with a strong nose for news. He's expected to focus on covering Providence politics and crime, among other topics, starting in mid-January.

WPRI has steadily bolstered its Web presence, showcasing work from Ted Nesi and Tim White.

No word yet on McGowan's sucessor at GoLocal.

(My standard disclosure: I'm a longtime panelist on WPRI's Newsmakers.)
