Bill Siroty




Nexus of Political News Dr. Bill Siroty of Amherst is not a psychiatrist, but he does a quick self-diagnosis when asked why he provides a free online news service to subscribers all over New Hampshire (and to lots of Beltway insiders). “Probably because I’m nuts,” says the news doctor, whose real job is with Harvard Pilgrim Health Care. Siroty got involved in the news business while working on the Bill Bradley campaign for president in 2000. “It expanded from Bradley news to New Hampshire politics and national politics.” He will soon be running a national news service. But will he be “fair and balanced”? “I’m trying to be,” said the doctor of non-partisan medicine.

New Hampshire Magazine knows where "It" is at. Each November, we identify the state's most happening people and publish their names and profiles in our annual "It List."

So what defines an "It" Person?

How about buzz, panache, je ne sais quoi, currency,  a person whose time has come, a person of tomorrow, a timeless person, noteworthy, below the radar, in the news, in the know, hot, cool, high impact, slippery, a mover and shaker, a humble saint, a behind-the-scenes operator, a scenery chewer, an unsung hero, a hero who knows how to sing. 

It's a quality that's hard to define, but you know it when you see it.

Above is one member of the 2006 It List.
