Tennessee biz editor hired as Virginia editorial page editor
G. Chambers Williams III, the former business editor of the Knoxville News Sentinel in Tennessee, has been named the editorial page editor of the Bristol Herald Courier in Virginia.
Zach Irby of the Herald Courier writes, “Williams is no stranger to the Twin City, having served as a managing editor for the Bristol Herald Courier from 1982-1983. He most recently worked as the business editor for the Knoxville News-Sentinel and also spent time as a business writer for The Tennessean in Nashville, Tennessee.
“‘I have also enjoyed opinion writing,’ Williams said. ‘With our opinion page, I hope people will end up finding something to think about and talk to their friends and neighbors about.’
“Williams will write editorials about local and state issues and will be responsible for the daily content and design of the opinion page. He will also work to establish a local board of contributors who will write columns and essays for the Bristol Herald Courier.”
