Jessica Hall, a former business journalist at Reuters, has been hired to cover business news for the Portland Press Herald in Maine.
Kelly Bouchard of the paper writes, “Hall has been a business reporter since 1992. For the past 16 years, she worked at Reuters, covering a beat ranging from mergers and acquisitions to airlines and telecommunications. Prior to Reuters, Hall worked at business newspapers in Baltimore, including the Baltimore Business Journal and The Daily Record.
“‘I basically see everything as a business story,’ Hall said. ‘I see the potential for business news in places most people wouldn’t expect.’
“Hall grew up in suburban Philadelphia and graduated from Syracuse University, where she studied magazine journalism and psychology. She will be living in Nobleboro with her husband of six months, John Chasse, who operates the Chasse Marine Co. boat yard in Damariscotta. They have four dogs and she enjoys gardening.”
