His resumé includes terms as editor of the Shelter Island Reporter and The Suffolk Times, having worked nearly a decade over three different stints with Times/Review.

“Peter has been part of the Times/Review Newsgroup family for years and understands the strength of each of our flags,” Mr. Olsen said.

Mr. Boody also served 14 years as editor of The Southampton Press and was the founding editor of The East Hampton Press. He has also published several novels and worked as editorial director of Flying Magazine.

A pilot and certified flight instructor, he lives in North Haven with his wife of 31 years, Barbara.
