The state’s biggest newspaper, the New Hampshire Union Leader, is filling the position vacated by State House Bureau Chief Tom Fahey with a part-time staffer.
The Lobby reports Garry Rayno has been rehired by the Union Leader to a part-time position to cover state government. Rayno was laid off by the Union Leader just last week after the paper’s largest union, the Manchester Newspaper Guild, unanimously rejected the publisher’s contract offer.
At the beginning of the year, the Union Leader dropped The Associates Press as a news provider. “We would prefer that New Hampshire news consumers get that information directly from us,” said publisher Joseph McQuaid.
