About JACK TANNER

Biography

I've been around newspapers since before the invention of dirt.

Actually, I've been in the business for 40+ years, starting back in the days of hot metal. Most of you readers don't even know what that is.

I'm a graduate from the University of Montana with something like 3 degrees.

In the past four-plus decades, I've held just about every position possible in a newsroom, from obit writer to managing editor. I've worked on newspapers in Montana, Wyoming, Wisconsin, Arizona, Illinois and now Florida. Won awards at every stop. (Well, la ti dah.)

I'm currently toiling away as a sports presentation desk editor. That means I edit sports stories and design sports pages. It's more fun than it sounds. Usually.
