Our man in Spiš
Since this newspaper was founded in March 1995, its readers have occasionally pointed out that The Bratislava Spectator would have been a more appropriate name given our tendency to focus on affairs in the capital to the exclusion of Slovakia's fascinating regions.
As of September 1, this criticism, at least, may no longer be invited. Chris Togneri, news and culture editor of the newspaper, has moved to the eastern Slovak town of Spišská Nová ves to become our first regional correspondent. He will be covering the news - be it in politics, society, economy or culture - that is made every week east of the River Váh.

Chris, 27, has been with The Slovak Spectator since November 1998 and is beginning his fourth year as a resident of Slovakia. He looks forward to meeting Spectator readers who have the good fortune to live in the country's smaller communities, and to reporting on the happennings in the eastern half of the country.
