Most of us have seen The Working Waterfront newspaper available free at locations around town. And most of us pick up a copy to read because it has interesting articles not only about the “working waterfront”, but also about the islands, the coast, the bays and sea, the environment, the fisheries and more. It reflects Maine’s close connection to the sea which is important to all of us in many ways.
Chris Wolf’s guest on Monday, January 10, 2016 was Tom Groening from the Island Institute. Tom serves as editor of The Working Waterfront and oversees all aspects of the paper’s print and online editions. He also edits Island Journal, the organization’s annual publication that celebrates island life and culture.
A seasoned reporter and editor with more than 25 years of experience in Maine journalism, Groening spent 10 years at Belfast’s weekly Republican Journal, and had been with the Bangor Daily News for 14 years, most recently as Belfast bureau chief, before coming to the Institute in February 2013.
The show was broadcast on WRFR Community Radio, Channel 7 Time Warner Maine Coast TV, and streamed live on www.mainecoast.tv/streaming.
The Chris Wolf Show is a joint project of PenBay Pilot, WRFR FM Community Radio and Maine Coast TV Community Television.
