The Marshall News Messenger has welcomed a new addition to its staff this week, hiring Nicholas Osborn, a 31-year-old local East Texan and graduate of Purdue University Global as the staff’s newest reporter.

In this new role, Osborn will be covering the Marshall and neighboring areas’ schools with features, interviews, and photos. He will also be covering legislative actions, shining a light on their community impact.

“I’ve looked forward to this for quite a while,” Osborn said regarding the new position.

Osborn has been a freelance writer with the News Messenger and her sister newspapers for several months.

Previously, Osborn had been an active journalist in the entertainment industry, covering pop culture where he was first a reporter before becoming owner and Editor-in-Chief for the press outlet Comic Watch. He then moved on to serve as marketing manager for Valiant Entertainment. He also has bylines with both Athlon Outdoors and Heritage Manufacturing, giving him a chance to highlight his enthusiasm for history and the outdoors industry.

“I am beyond excited to bring a focus to the community that I grew up in,” Osborn said, “taking what I’ve learned in my journalism experience abroad to help showcase all the different and exciting aspects of this historic area alongside the Marshall News Messenger.”
