Burns added as staff writer
Lancaster County Weeklies editor Andy Fasnacht announces the addition of veteran reporter Pat Burns to the news staff.
Burns will be writing for both the Lititz Record Express and The Ephrata Review, and will be seen throughout the communities covered by the two weekly papers.
Burns’ career in news writing spans almost 20 years. He is an award-winning journalist and former staff writer with the Lancaster Intelligencer Journal, Reading Eagle, and Delaware County Daily Times. He has worked as a business writer – serving in that capacity with all three dailies – and has covered education, government, police, courts, and sports with a long list of feature and enterprise story bylines.
"We are very fortunate to land someone with Pat’s outstanding credentials and familiarity with this area," said Fasnacht. "Pat is anxious to establish and renew relationships with government leaders and the residents of our communities while reporting on the many important stories out there."
Burns also has numerous photo and video credits, and an extensive freelance writing background.
"I’m excited to work with Andy and the bright, ambitious and enthusiastic staff he commands," he said. "I look forward to renewing old relationships – forged while working with the Intell – and I’m thrilled to be launching a new career working in the communities in and around Ephrata and Lititz.
"I plan to be visible on the Review’s-Record’s social media sites and hope to produce multi-media pieces for submission there," he said.
Originally from Collingdale, Pat has a journalism degree from Temple University and graduated from Monsignor Bonnor High School, Drexel Hill; he is a member of Our Mother of Perpetual Help Church in Ephrata; and he and his wife Julie have two children: Maggie and Michael.
