We're Making Some Changes to New Providence-Berkeley Heights Patch

Patch is here to stay for the communities of New Providence, Berkeley Heights and Mountainside, but we are making some changes we'd love to share with you. Please, read on!

It's been quite a journey for New Providence-Berkeley Heights Patch.

About two years ago, New Providence Patch was launched to the community and has grown by leaps and bounds ever since. Then, in March of 2012, Berkeley Heights-Mountainside Patch merged with New Providence Patch and made for an even better hyper-local news and information site for the residents of New Providence, Berkeley Heights and Mountainside. In that time, it has been a wonderful privilege to serve as your editor. But the times they are a-changin'.

We're mixing things up at Patch this week, but don't worry — New Providence-Berkeley Heights Patch is here to stay. Instead, I will be hopping over to the hilltop we all lovingly know as Summit and taking over Summit Patch. (Camilo Smith, the former editor of Summit Patch, is now editor of Cranford Patch). But that doesn't mean I'm leaving you all for good — I'll still be overseeing all news for New Providence, too!

As for residents of Berkeley Heights and Mountainside, please allow me to introduce you to Adam Bulger, Editor of Springfield Patch Editor, and Nicole Bitette, Associate Local Editor for Union County.

About Adam Bulger

As a New Jersey native and the Springfield Patch editor, Adam is a journalist who has written extensively for print and online publications, and will be overseeing Berkeley Heights from here on out. Springfield is the second site he has worked on; prior to launching in Springfield, he launched one of the original three Patch sites in Maplewood, NJ.

Before working for Patch, he was a staff writer for the Hartford Advocate, a newsweekly in Connecticut.

For any Berkeley Heights-related news, please contact Adam at adamb@patch.com.

About Nicole Bitette

Nicole is the Associate Local Editor for Union County Patch sites and focuses mostly on Scotch Plains-Fanwood. Now, Nicole will be covering news for Mountainside as well.

Nicole graduated from Seton Hall University, Cum Laude, with a B.A. in Journalism. In the past few years, she has worked for Seton Hall's official campus newspaper, The Setonian and Seton Hall's award-winning radio station, WSOU. She has also written for an online local news publication, The Alternative Press, in Maplewood and South Orange. Most recently, she tried out the New York magazine world, by working as an Editorial Assistant for Traditional Home Magazine, due to her interest in design and home decorating. However, Nicole came back to her love for local news. Right now, she is trying to get to know who's who in Mountainside, and she looks forward to meeting you.

For any Mountainside-related news, please email Nicole at nicole.bitette@patch.com.

With any new change, there's always an adjustment period. But Nicole, Adam and I will do our very best to provide you with the most up-to-date news about Berkeley Heights, Mountainside and New Providence.

We look forward to working with you!

All the best,

Caitlin Mahon

Editor, Summit Patch & New Providence Patch
