Patrick Doyle Moves Up at Rolling Stone

Patrick Doyle, who was Ithacan assistant Accent editor before transferring to New York University in 2008, has since graduated and gone to work for Rolling Stone in New York, first as a reporter and now as an assistant editor. He’ll be writing stories for the Rock and Roll section in the front of the magazine and helping with headlines, reporting on other stories and editing. He writes, “I’ve gotten to go to a lot of great festivals like Bonnaroo, Newport Folk Festival, Eric Clapton’s Crossroads festival and gotten to interview my heroes, including Leonard Cohen, Kris Kristofferson, Pete Seeger, Willie Nelson and others. It’s been a lot of fun.”
“This wouldn’t be possible without The Ithacan,” he said. “It gave me my first real taste of being in a newsroom.”
You can find an archive of his stories here.
