A story on its website states, “MacDougall, who obtained his bachelor’s degree from Worcester State University and master’s degree from Boston University, previously wrote as a freelancer for Worcester Magazine and as a staff reporter for the Bangor Daily News and its sister publication Houlton Pioneer Times in Maine.
