When he returned to the states in 1986, he took an editing job with the Florida Times-Union in Jacksonville and eventually became Metro Editor. Seven years later he was named Executive Editor at The Intelligencer.

"The reporting skills I learned at Bucks have helped me earn eight first-place writing awards and a nomination for the Pulitzer prize for my newspaper. The teachers are like good newsroom editors - tough, smart and always pushing you beyond what you think you're capable of."

-J.D. Mullane, investigative reporter, Bucks County Courier Times
