Jay Braman Jr. - reporter
Jay started writing for the Catskill Mountain News in 1990 following a long held dream that he could one day be a part of the paper. A local resident since boyhood, Jay holds a B.A. from SUNY Utica having graduated with honors in 1982. After visiting other parts of the globe and following an acting carreer that left him satisfied but penniless, Jay returned to the Catskills in the late 80's and has been here ever since. Jay enjoys being a watchdog of the goings-on in the region, of the changes, what doesn't change, etc. and he is pleased to have the opportunity to keep a record of it all week after week.
