Miss you, Rich Pedroli

RichKeyboard

Rich Pedroli’s keyboard sits behind glass in “The Pod” of the MetroWest Daily News newsroom. The former news editor, who died three years ago yesterday, typed so hard he wore away the letters and numbers (which he would thoughtfully re-ink once a week) on multiple keyboards.

Single best damn editor I’ve ever worked with. I’ve often wondered what he would say about the extreme downturn our industry has taken since his death… and whenever I’ve had a news crisis, the thought is always “What would Pedroli do? Besides swear his head off?”
