He was born in Syracuse, but grew up in the state of Maryland. He came back to the area in 2011, wanting to settle down and raise his 7-year-old son.
“It’s a great opportunity to do what I have been doing for the past 18 months,” he said.
According to Klein, it’s like returning to his roots.
He graduated from Auburn University, where he majored in journalism. But his career took him in other directions after, including acting and writing.
The latter includes a book, “The King of New Orleans,” and two plays that have been produced.
“I love to write,” Klein said.
He was looking forward to the opportunity to write, and The Crier will continue to provide that.
Pollak said that Klein brings a “wide-ranging knowledge” of local news and sports to his position.
“He will be part of an outstanding team working to keep The Cooperstown Crier readers informed,” he said.
Lynch said Klein will be a welcome team member to The Cooperstown Crier. He said he was expecting “great things,” from both Klein and Miller in their new roles.
