NANUET, NY – The Rockland County Times, the oldest paper in Rockland County, has announced it is under new ownership and that longtime Editor Dylan Skriloff was stepping aside.
“We have found a great team to take Rockland County Times into the future. I will be stepping down as fearless leader and making room for the NEW.
Congratulations to new publisher Walter Sanchez (owner of nine publications, including the Queens Ledger), new Editor Joe Kuhn , a Pearl River native, and good luck to longtime staff staying with the paper, including business manager Diane Kugel and legals secretary Terri Warner.
I will help with the transition process and then I’m taking a sabbatical. Don’t worry, “I’ll be back” in one form or another.” said Dylan Skriloff.
Dylan is an excellent writer and covered many big stories in Rockland, but none bigger than when Lohud published the infamous Gun Map. The story would get global coverage and he would appear on Fox News (link below) and various other outlets.
