Andrew Wigger, publisher of The Newberry Observer, is set to depart. His last day is August 4.
“Where do I begin to tell all of you what it has meant to me to be here for almost a decade. From every staff member previously mentioned who helped shape me into the journalist and writer I am today. This job has taught me so much, including how to be an active member of the community, I honestly do not know the person I would be if I did not take the job nine years ago.
“My last day here will be August 4 and just in case you were curious, I’m not moving and will still be working in Newberry — and I’m pretty excited about it. The where part will soon be revealed, I promise. I will also soon introduce all of you to two new members of our writing staff, I can’t wait for you to meet them!”
Wigger has a B.A. from Newberry College in South Carolina.
