Plymouth-Whitemarsh Patch Receives New Editor Today

Kyle Bagenstose to take over the reins.

Hello Plymouth-Whitemarsh readers, please allow me to introduce myself.

My name is Kyle Bagenstose, and as of today I have the privilege of being the editor of Plymouth-Whitemarsh Patch. Previous editor Nathan Adams was promoted to regional editor for Patch’s mainline sites.

I come to PW after 15 months of working as editor of Upper Dublin Patch, which was my first full-time job after graduating from Temple University’s journalism program in May 2010. I was born and raised in Reading, Pa., and was drawn east by the bright lights of the big city.

I’ll shoot you straight and say that I don’t have decades of experience behind my pen or a rolodex full of important names in the area.  However, what I do have is a passion for quality journalism, fairness and getting the facts straight. I’m genuinely excited to dive head first into covering Plymouth and Whitemarsh townships, along with Conshohocken, and put together a quality publication for you to enjoy.

I’m also not a complete stranger to PW, as I’ve already reported on some issues that stretched across the border with Upper Dublin ( in particular, but also a certain proposed “” location on Pennsylvania Avenue). I also attended my first Whitemarsh Business Association meeting two weeks ago, where I met a number of local leaders, including Conshohocken resident and county treasurer Jason Salus.

However, I know the learning curve is steep and I ask that you share your knowledge with me, either publicly or by contacting me at Kyle@Patch.com or at 267-250-3892. Plymouth-Whitemarsh Patch will be a publication of two-way communication, and I encourage you to reach out about any issue or story idea, no matter how small it may seem.

Thank you for your time and readership, and as editor for Plymouth-Whitemarsh Patch I hope to both earn your trust and provide you with a great local news destination.
