Meet the D&C’s new east-side reporter

13 Sep

Georgie SilvaroleI had a very pleasant meeting yesterday afternoon with Georgina Silvarole, the new east-side reporter for the D&C.

Georgie, as she likes to be called, reached out to me a few days ago, hoping to meet up and pick my brain about all things Webster. She is a Rochester-area native, having grown up in Scottsville, but doesn’t know much about the east-side towns which are on her beat.

So I invited her for a cup of coffee at Barry’s Old School Irish (of course). Barry’s is not only representative of our village’s small-town, family-centric feel, but its four-corners location is ideal for checking out “downtown” Webster.

Georgie is a December 2016 graduate of Syracuse University’s Newhouse School, and a former intern at the D&C. After graduation she worked at the Greenville (South Carolina) News, and the Syracuse Post-Standard before returning to the D&C just a few weeks ago. Her official title is Suburban Trends Reporter, and she replaces Lauren Peace, who left the newspaper recently when she was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship.

Georgie will be covering several east-side communities including Webster, so you might be seeing her out and about in town.  She may even reach out through social media sometimes for help with a story … for example, she’s working on a piece about Greenlight internet services and would love to connect with someone who’s a current subscriber. If you’d like to chat with her, email her at GSilvarole@rocheste.gannett.com, or you can get in touch with me and I will pass your information along!

P.S. This doesn’t mean I’m going anywhere! Georgie and I will actually be working together to share story ideas. So keep sending me your story tips and concerns, because I might just send some of them along to her.
