Changing of the guard

By Anne Eisenmenger | Dec 06, 2010

When Wareham Week editor Cyrus Moulton moved to Wareham a year ago, relatively fresh out of journalism school, it was to take the helm of a news operation that did not yet exist.

He and other members of the founding team had a prototype of the newspaper, a commitment to develop our version of a VillageSoup website that existed only in Maine, and a lot of ideas about how community journalism could survive and thrive in the digital age.

Today, with Wareham Week and pretty firmly established as the go-to places for local news, Cyrus is preparing to move on to his next challenge.

He will be succeeded by Jaime Rebhan. A fellow member of our founding team, Jaime has served as staff reporter and, since June, editor of A native of Central New York and 2009 graduate of Emerson College, she lives in Onset.

Cyrus leaves big shoes to fill. A wonderful writer (he is leaving to pursue his passion for longer-form magazine journalism), he lent his special touch to stories about everything from a “goth princess” movie being filmed at the Mill Pond Diner to a description of herring runs to an account of a woman stranded on her roof while trying to rescue her cat.

But Jaime will do a great job of filling those big shoes.  After all, she, too, was there at the beginning. And her enthusiasm for Wareham and Onset remains infectious – even as she has worked hard to gain expertise on such less-than-fun topics as the municipal sewer system and school funding.

In her own words: “This is a great town. Of course there are issues. Every town has issues. But I want people here to realize what a great place they have to call home.”

Who will fill Jaime’s shoes? Stand by for an announcement in the near future, as Wareham Week and WarehamVillageSoup prepare for Year 2.

Best of luck to Cyrus and Jaime. I look forward to seeing more from Cyrus as he pursues his passion!
