Veteran journalist Clint Cooper has been appointed editorial page editor for the Chattanooga Free Press.
A native of Chattanooga, Cooper started working at the Chattanooga Free Press in 1980.
At the Free Press and Times Free Press, he has worked as both an editor and reporter and has a background in news, sports and feature writing. Most recently, he covered faith and religion for the Times Free Press.
Jason Taylor, president of the Times Free Press, said Cooper understands the Chattanooga area and respects the tradition of the Free Press editorial page.
“He knows and loves this community, and his depth of knowledge about it will inform his editorials,” Taylor said.
The Times Free Press is unique among American newspapers in publishing two editorial pages. On the left side, the Times opinion page offers a more liberal perspective and commentary. On the right, the Free Press editorial page presents a conservative viewpoint.
