PlanetAlbany is the blog of Bob Conner, who has had a quarter-century of experience working on daily newspapers in upstate New York. He covered the Capitol from 2005 to 2008 and, like Milton in “Office Space,” will continue to do so on this blog, along with working at new trades.
Bob won two first-place writing awards from the New York State Associated Press Association for newspapers with circulation between 50,000 and 125,000. He has also lived and worked in New York City, where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa from NYU. He now lives in the Capital Region with his wife, a schoolteacher. They have three grown children.
