John Holyoke

John Holyoke is an award-winning journalist who has been entertaining and informing readers of the Bangor Daily News for twenty-five years. His natural curiosity has helped make him a master of the “People Story,” and his job as outdoor editor has allowed him to travel to some of the state’s most special places in search of experiences to savor and tales to share. Holyoke grew up in Brewer, graduated from the University of Maine in Orono, and has been writing for newspapers since sixth grade. He is an avid hunter and fly fisherman who loves spending time at the family camp on Beech Hill Pond in Otis. John lives in Brewer with his wife, Karen, his three stepchildren, two dogs, and one cat.
