Mayor John Ditslear announced today that Robert Herrington has joined the City of Noblesville to further develop its communications and social media presence. Herrington comes with a decade of experience covering Noblesville and Hamilton County as a professional journalist.
“I am excited to begin a new challenge with the City of Noblesville and look forward to working with its employees to showcase the wonderful things taking place in our city,” Herrington said. “For years I have covered the events taking place and now I am ready to be a part of the team that makes our city truly special.”
For the past three and a half years, Herrington has served as the managing editor of Current in Noblesville and Current in Westfield and previously worked at The Noblesville Daily Times and The Times.
“This decision was very bittersweet. Steve Greenberg and Brian Kelly have been wonderful to me and my family and great bosses to work under,” he said. “Current focuses on communities and what impacts the lives of our direct readers. Because of this, I’ve invested a lot of time getting to know the wonderful people, organizations and places that make each community special. I’ll miss not continuing that relationship in a journalist role.”
Herrington will begin his duties as communications manager on April 13.
“I am very excited to welcome Robert to our team. His experience and skill will help us realize our vision for new communication opportunities in the city,” Ditslear said.
