Today we launched a brand new HamletHub in Wethersfield CT. This historic town (350 years young) is located in Hartford County, just outside the city of Hartford.
Our Wethersfield editor is Jerry Laguerre. A hardworking and dedicated journalist, Jerry has been a jack-of-all-trades throughout his career in the media, from editing to designing to writing.
Jerry spent two years as an Associate Editorial Graphics Producer at ESPN, where he was responsible for creating, editing and overseeing the editorial content for shows that appeared on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNEWS. Jerry’s work could be seen on several shows including SportsCenter, the company’s flagship program, Numbers Never Lie, College Football Live and Highlight Express.
Prior to ESPN, Jerry spent nearly nine years at The (Bergen) Record newspaper in New Jersey, as a sports layout/copy editor. An avid sports fan, Jerry married his two passions of journalism and sports, and was a leader in the newsroom. Along with editing stories and writing headlines about pro, college and high school sports, he also was one of the newspaper’s leading layout artists, and would often design the sports cover page.
As a Wethersfield resident, Jerry is excited to be the editor of a site that is devoted to a town rich in history nestled in Central Connecticut near the state's capital city.
