Joshua F. Moore is the former executive editor for this media outlet, that was then known as Pine Tree Watch. Moore’s work has appeared in national, regional and local newspapers and magazines ranging from The Denver Post to WoodenBoat magazine, among many others. A graduate of Wesleyan University, he began his journalism career in Colorado, where he started as a beat reporter covering cops and courts for The Durango Herald, a daily newspaper in the Four Corners area. His coverage of a manhunt for cop-killers in the desert Southwest stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the national press that covered the massive search, earning him statewide awards and instilling the news bug in him at a young age. Promotions that followed included city editor and, at the nearby Cortez Journal, managing editor and helped Moore gain a broader understanding of the news operation. The Durango Herald’s coverage of a 73,000-acre fire near Moore’s home earned him the Sigma Delta Chi Award from the Society of Professional Journalists — one of the top journalism awards in the country. Returning home to Maine, Moore became an associate editor of Down East and later the magazine’s deputy editor. His work growing Down East’s digital footprint led to a new opportunity as the co-creator of USHarbors.com, an online startup serving boaters that grew to more than 4 million users annually.
