Scott Brodeur Edited

Scott Brodeur is a regular contributor to masslive.com blogs. A lot of his contributions to his blog have to do with music. Perhaps this is related to the fact that he is in his own band called Storybox. Storybox just recorded a new album called "Empty Canvas." Amazon.com has a CD called "The Sardinista! Project" that he contributed to.

"My favorite musical artist is Miles Davis," Brodeur says. "He dared to try new things all of the time."

He is a husband who reluctantly owns a cat named Cocoa. He resides in Northampton, MA, making him my neighbor. He was born in CT, raised in New Jersey. He has lived in Northampton with his wife Barbara Cheney and their three children for 11 years.

He teaches at UMass, I found numerous Convergence Journalism blogs from his former students.

He received his undergraduate degree from Syracuse University in 1987 in Magazine Journalism and American Studies. Brodeur went to New York University for his MA in English Education.

We share a common friend on facebook, a formerly avid Northampton blogger, Paolo Mastrangelo. Brodeur has been called the "Godfather of Western, MA Blogging". He is a founding editor-in-chief of Masslive.com and helped to launch the website NJ.com in 1996. He is the Managing Editor at Advance Internet. He has two sons, Jonathan, 10, Gabriel, 7, and a daughter, Elizabeth, 4.

Back in '03 Gregory Tulonen called him "desperate" for link backs because Brodeur kept writing about his nurse books.

As a writer he is known for writing about a variety of subjects including sports, music and pop culture. His work has been in Billboard, Paste, The Source, and The Philadelphia Inquirer among others.
