Matt Friedman is new Star-Ledger reporter

Today is bittersweet for as we announce the departure of Matt Friedman from our reporting staff.   Matt will be joining the Star-Ledger statehouse bureau, and we are extraordinarily proud of him as he begins the next chapter of his life covering politics and government in New Jersey.  Since he joined us before the 2007 primary (after graduating from Columbia Journalism School and completing internships at USA Today and the Village Voice),  Matt has distinguished himself as one of the state’s finest reporters and we will miss him.

Over the next few weeks, will introduce several new additions to our full-time reporting staff, joining Max Pizarro, who is now in his fourth year with this web site.  As always, we appreciate the loyal support of our readers who have helped us grow since our launch ten years ago.
