Insider Louisville has hired Kevin Gibson as a reporter covering retail, restaurants and real estate.
A story on its website states, “Kevin first started writing for Insider in late 2013 as a freelancer doing food reviews and random stories and assignments. He became a part-time employee in 2014 for a year. He kept writing as a freelancer continuously afterward, from spring 2015 until this March.
“As a full-time reporter, Kevin will tackle the 3Rs — retail, restaurants, real estate — plus, economic development. Caitlin Bowling, who previously covered those beats, now works as a communications manager at Louisville Forward.
“As a contributor to Insider, Kevin has won four Society of Professional Journalists awards.
“Kevin holds degrees from Indiana University Southeast in journalism and English and in his decades as a professional writer, has covered sports, government, crime, the arts, music and pretty much everything else you can imagine, he says. ‘I’ve done everything from riding along on police drug busts to covering the NCAA tournament to interviewing Yoko Ono.'”
