About the Chicopee Register

Meet the Staff

The Chicopee Register published its first edition on September 10, 1998 and was immediately embraced by area residents. The newspaper staff prides itself on delivering innovative and enlightening coverage to the 54,000 residents of this city, the second largest in Western Massachusetts. The goal of the Turley family was to create a community paper in the city that residents could call their own. That goal was met with much success, and the Chicopee Register has truly become “What Chicopee Reads For News.”

Tim Kane
Executive Editor, Turley Publications
A 16-year veteran of the newspaper industry, Tim has been a part of the Turley team since 2005. He entered the trade with the goal to make a difference in the world by serving as a public informant and seeking the truth—and continues to work by that guiding principle today. His favorite assignment was breaking a series of stories in Ashland, Mass. about one man's battle with cancer and his quest to uncover the truth about a former manufacturer's decades of hazardous waste dumping in town. Tim has a BA from Fitchburg State College and attended the American Press Institute. Tim lives in Brookfield with his wife, Danielle, and their two sons, Timmy Jr. and Christopher. His pastimes include songwriting, drumming, writing fiction, cross-country skiing, hiking, trail maintenance, and volunteering for the Boy Scouts.

Dave Forbes
Sports Editor, Turley Publications
A lifelong sports fan, Dave figured a career covering sports would be the next best thing to playing them. The Chicopee resident is new to the Turley team but brings seven years experience in journalism, most recently as sports editor for nearby Stonebridge Press. His favorite assignments have included covering the Tantasqua boys' varsity basketball team during the 2006-2007 season, not to mention the 2003 New England Patriots Super Bowl Championship parade and the 2004 Boston Red Sox World Championship parade. Dave is a 2000 graduate of Westfield State College with a major in Communication.
