The New Haven Register’s assignment desk just got better, with Brian McCready‘s promotion to metro editor.
Brian joined the Register as a reporter in Milford in 2000, and has developed a reputation among his colleagues as one of the hardest-working members of the staff, and a strong reputation for fairness in the communities he’s covered. He has served as Milford bureau chief since 2004.
In his new role, Brian will be chiefly responsible for coordinating news coverage of the Naugatuck Valley and Milford, Bethany, Orange and Woodbridge.
He’ll also be a vital assistant and backup to Managing Editor Mark Brackenbury and City Editor Helen Bennett Harvey, who have been taking on an increased role in planning statewide news coverage and investigative story projects.
