My name is Royale (pronounced Roy-elle) and I’m excited and nervous about my new role as The Banner’s Anne Arundel County regional reporter. I want my coverage of the county to be as meaningful, audience-focused and comprehensive as possible. I’m also new to the area, so I’ll need your help!

I hope to establish a rapport with people in the community. I want readers to feel free to email me with questions or things you think I should know. Is there an event that I should attend? Are there persistent problems in your neighborhood? What changes do you want to see? Which issues need the most attention? I’m all ears!

By listening to community feedback and staying engaged with our readers, I hope to provide Anne Arundel County readers with useful and thoughtful coverage. I started earlier this fall, and I’m looking forward to continuing this journey!
