Oregon paper hires new business reporter
Scott Carroll has been hired as a business reporter for The News-Review in Roseburg, Oregon.
A story on its website states, “While Carroll just started as a business reporter this week, he’s not new to the area, or the beat. He started his newspaper career covering business for The News-Review 20 years ago. Two years later he moved across the country to take a reporter position with the Sarasota Herald-Tribune in Florida. There he stayed, first as a reporter before working his way up the editing ladder, culminating as projects editor. Carroll moved back to the Roseburg area earlier this year to be closer to family here.
“News-Review News Editor Mike Henneke said while Carroll’s stories and projects were impressive, what sold him was the glowing remarks of Carroll’s references.
“‘One former editor wrote, and I quote, that he saw Scott walk on water,’ Henneke said.”
