At The Record, also a Journal Register Co. daily, Caprood led efforts to open the newspaper’s doors to the public. He partnered with local bloggers and invited readers to classes led by them.
That effort was in part inspired by The Register Citizen Newsroom Cafe, an “open newsroom” experiment that Caprood will now help lead.
Prior to being promoted to online editor in Troy, he worked as a reporter at The Record for two and a half years.
Caprood is a 2007 graduate of The College of Saint Rose in Albany, N.Y. He and his wife recently moved to Torrington.
At The Register Citizen he will share co-managing editor duties with Tom Cleary, who joined the staff earlier this year, under the leadership of John Berry, editor of The Register Citizen and Middletown Press.
