Biz columnist leaves for chamber job
C. Grant Jackson, who was the business editor and later the business columnist for The State newspaper in Columbia, S.C., is leaving the paper to take a job at the local chamber of commerce.
A story Tuesday stated, “Jackson came to The State from the Dayton Daily News in 1996. He was the executive business editor until 2002, when he became the paperâ€™s business columnist.
“‘Like many in this region, I moved here from someplace else and discovered a sense of place and a quality of life that is bursting with potential,’ said Jackson, a 58-year-old Florida native. ‘I truly believe that together we can build the first great Southern community of the new millennium.’
“Jackson led The Stateâ€™s business section when it was twice named Best In Business by the Society of American Business Editors and Writers.”
