Klein is joined on staff by reporter Bera Dunau, 25. Dunau covered business news and general assignment reporting for The Daily Star before joining the Crier staff.
A native of Hancock, Dunau is a 2010 graduate of Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass. Before returning to the local area earlier this year, Dunau was a general assignment staff reporter at the Berkshire Beacon in Lenox, Mass.
Jessica Reynolds will join The Daily Star’s staff as a reporter on Monday. A native of Andes, Reynolds received a bachelor’s degree in mass communications from the State University College at Oneonta with a minor in journalism in 2012.
“We’re excited to have a local graduate come be part of The Daily Star team,” Lynch said.
Reynolds, who has been a contributing writer to the newspaper since August, will report on local colleges and health care.
