Skip Foreman, a longtime Associated Press reporter in North Carolina, has been named Triad Sports Editor for Lee Enterprises and will direct sports coverage for the Winston-Salem Journal and journalnow.com as well as the Greensboro News & Record and greensboro.com.
He starts his new job on Monday.
“I’m excited to have Skip on our team,” said Dimon Kendrick-Holmes, editor of Lee Enterprises’ North Carolina newspapers. “He’s a tremendous journalist and storyteller, and he knows the Triad well. We want to bring our readers local stories they can’t get anywhere else, and he’s going to do that.”
He began his journalism career in 1973 as a high school senior, working as a reporter for The Daily Reflector, the newspaper in his hometown of Greenville, N.C.
