J.B. McKinley is a family man who started in the newspaper business in the mid 1970s selling ads, collecting bills and reporting. He has done quite a few jobs – pipelaying, truck driving, carpentering, typesetting and has even owned a movie theater with his wife, well known locally as “She Who Must Be Obeyed.” He would not describe himself as a white collar worker, but he did go to school! He came to the News & Citizen in the early 1980s and ended up editor in the 20th Century! Now, here he is – still at it. Many things change – and many things stay the same. He’s here to tell as much truth about what’s happening in Lamoille County as he can discover and put on the pages of the News & Citizen. He’s well aware that good things happen, too, especially likes putting that in our pages.
Nearly 20 years ago, a wet-behind-the-ears freckle-faced lad strolled into the News & Citizen looking for a job. With a little prodding and a lot of editing, he learned the ropes and can still be found pounding away at the keyboard with his rudimentary typing skills.
Mickey has come and gone from the newspaper over the past 20 years, but during that time he has covered both ends of Lamoille County and currently is on his second stint as “lead reporter.” Mickey's favorite areas to cover, though, remain sports and the crime beat.
Mickey is a 1990 graduate of Husson College (now Husson University), in Bangor, ME, where he received his Associate's degree in broadcast communications.
During his free time Mickey enjoys disc golf, playing board games with friends, and following baseball and auto racing.
Mickey and his recent bride, Kristin, live in Morrisville.
