Allen Adams to replace Katy England as assignment editor

BANGOR The Maine Edge announced that its editor, Katy England, has resigned after nearly 10 years of leading the editorial operations of the popular weekly. She will be joining the Maine State Police as the agency's social media and communications coordinator based in Bangor.

England joined Edge Media Group, the company that publishes The Edge, in the fall of 2006 when she and several former staffers of the Bangor Daily News left the BDN during cutbacks that year and founded The Edge. England was named assignment editor the following year, a position she held for over nine years.

During her tenure, England graduated from the area's Bangor Region Leadership Institute and was the publication's ambassador in the community. She wasn't afraid to go the extra mile for a story, either her editorial exploits included getting TASERed, jumping out of airplanes, navigating Maine's whitewater waterways while rafting, trolling coastal waters while deep sea fishing, riding along with law enforcement and, as she put it, 'talking to some interesting folks along the way.'

After the birth of her triplets in 2011, she shared stories of her family with readers when she took on the additional title of 'edge staff mom.' A staple for the past four years, the column gave readers a bit of insight into the oft-asked question, 'How do you do it?'

'Katy will be greatly missed. She has been the voice of The Edge and earned the trust and respect of so many in our community,' said Mike Fern, publisher of The Edge. 'While we wish her success in her new endeavor, we also look forward to a new chapter in our editorial operations.'

Taking her place will be long-time staff writer and film critic Allen Adams. A Levant native and graduate of the University of Maine with a degree in theater, Adams began his career with The Edge in December 2007. For years, Adams appeared in The Edge's morning segment on Fox Bangor's 'Good Morning Maine' news show. He is currently a recurring guest on 'Downtown with Rich Kimball,' which airs each day on WZON, and serves as the radio show's film critic. In addition, Adams is a member in good standing of both the National Book Critics Circle and the National Sports Media Association.

'Katy's done a wonderful job in her time at The Edge they're big shoes to fill,' Adams said of England. 'I've learned a lot from her over the years. We'll miss her around here, but I'm looking forward to the opportunity to participate in the process in a different way.'

With interests ranging from film, theatre and literature to the Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots and even craft beer, Adams brings a wealth of experience to the position. He is a veteran of the local theatre scene, having appeared in numerous productions over the years for both Penobscot Theatre Company and Ten Bucks Theatre. Adams is also one of the founding members of the local improv troupe The Focus Group.

'Allen has been a staple on our pages for almost nine years, and our readers have really enjoyed his perspective.' Fern said. 'I look forward to working with him as our new editor, and to his stewardship of our dominant coverage of the area's arts and cultural scene.'

Adams lives in Bangor with his wife, Sheridan, and their dog, Stella.
