Dan Crowley, a long-time investigative reporter for the Daily Hampshire Gazette of Northampton, has been named its managing editor. Crowley began at the Gazette in September 2001, and covered a number of subjects. The New England Newspaper and Press Association has recognized Crowley’s enterprise and investigative work, most recently for his research on financial abuses and oversight failures in the state’s funeral homes. He is filling a job left vacant by Samantha Wood, who left in June to become deputy managing editor at The Berkshire Eagle of Pittsfield. The Daily Hampshire Gazette is planning to hire another reporter after Crowley’s promotion. Crowley’s career as a reporter began in the late 1990s.
