The Forsyth County News recently welcomed a new member to its editorial staff, hiring former FCN reporter and Hall County native Frank Reddy as editor.
Reddy, who began in the position Oct. 19, previously worked at the Dawson County News — then named the Dawson Community News —and the Gainesville Times, FCN’s sister papers.
He has most recently been employed as a freelance writer, during which he wrote for publications including: the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Gwinnett Daily Post, Creative Loafing and Atlanta Magazine, among others.
A small press in San Francisco also published his first novel, “Eyes on the Island,” in 2016.
“I’m very excited about this new role, and I’m looking forward to working with the talented staff of the Forsyth County News,” Reddy said. “This is a wonderful community and helping lead this team in covering the news that matters to our readers is a huge honor.”
FCN Publisher Stephanie Woody, who was named publisher last month, said she was pleased to welcome Reddy to the paper.
“We are so excited to have someone with Frank’s experience overseeing our news team,” she said. “He brings with him a great deal of experience and a stellar reputation in local, honest journalism.”
Reddy replaces former editor Kayla Robins.
Reddy currently lives in Atlanta with his wife, Joy, and daughter, Stella, 3.
