Charlie Eichacker

Digital News Reporter

Charlie joined Maine Public at the start of 2021, after spending more than seven years writing for newspapers in Maine and Vermont. 

Charlie most recently worked as a reporter for the Bangor Daily News, covering health care and general news across Bangor and much of the rest of state. He spent most of 2020 documenting how COVID-19 was spreading across Maine, affecting everyone from nursing home residents to health care workers to jail inmates to manufacturers. 

Charlie has worked for two other newspapers in Maine  — the Kennebec Journal in Augusta and the Ellsworth American — and Seven Days, a weekly paper in Burlington, Vermont. His stories have received top honors from the Maine Press Association, New England Newspaper & Press Association and National Newspaper Association.

Charlie has a bachelor's degree in English from Colby College and a master's in journalism from Columbia University. He taught English in China for two years with the U.S. Peace Corps and now lives in Bethel with his partner, their two cats and a dog.
