Meet Jamie DeLoma

A recovering journalist with 13 years of professional experience, Jamie DeLoma loves technology as much as he does story-telling.

Jamie, a past president of Connecticut SPJ and current board member, has been unnaturally curious for as long as he can remember. He founded a chapter of SPJ on Quinnipiac University’s campus in 2003, and is on the international organization’s digital media committee.

Currently the assistant director of public relations and social media at Quinnipiac University in Hamden,Conn., and a part-time A1 page designer and copy editor for the Hearst Connecticut Media Group, Jamie is loving life.

At Quinnipiac, he oversees the university’s social media endeavors (where he has helped lead the way to dramatic increases in both interactions and connections on Facebook, Twitter, WordPress and Foursquare,) helps coordinate media relations, coordinates a weekly faculty/staff newsletter and teaches undergraduate and graduate writing and social media courses.

At Hearst Connecticut, Jamie crafts front and inside pages for four daily newspapers (The Connecticut Post, Stamford Advocate, Danbury News-Times and Greenwich Time,) and occasionally the group’s six weekly newspapers. Combined, nearly a quarter of a million readers get their news from our products on any given weekday, and substantially more on Sundays.

Jamie has been affiliated with the Connecticut post since 1998, when he began as intern. Since then, he has contributed to the news, features, business and sports sections. He has written regularly printed columns and advised a high school writing section. He also blogs about technology issues for the newspaper group, which has been quoted in national media outlets, including AOL News.

Jamie has also worked full-time at The Stamford Advocate (before it was affiliated with the Connecticut Post,) WNBC-TV and the FOX News Channel. He has a strong understanding of print, broadcast and digital platforms.

Jamie has also mentored young journalists at the Milford (Conn.) Boys and Girls Club and has contributed columns to the Radio Television Digital News Association.
