So, first things first – my name is Ted McEnroe, and I am the Director of Public Relations for the Boston Foundation. Until mid-2011, I was the Director of Digital Media for New England Cable News. NECN, as you might call it. (But please pronounce it “N-E-C-N”, not “NECK-IN”. )
After nearly two decades in news (television and for the last four years, online), I moved to the world of philanthropy to both satisfy my desires for new adventures and to try to get back into what drew me to journalism in the first place – the desire to make a difference. I grew fascinated by communities and organizations, and conveniently, had an easy next step to do more with that fascination. In 2014, I joined The Community Roundtable as Director of Research and Training, where I have the honor and responsibility of leading our research efforts into online communities.
But the blog isn’t really designed to be a reflection of my work, although it might creep in. it is my voice – mine alone – and will no doubt be a mix of personal reflections on my work, life and world as a parent, and it is a place to share those things that I find interesting… across the spectrum. There are certainly enough interesting things happening.
So to be clear: the views, opinions and all that good stuff posted on this blog are my views alone, and not those of my employers or anyone else. Just me. You can, however, use, repost, show highlights, and comment with or without the expressed written consent of Major League Baseball.
