Knoxville News Sentinel
The Knoxville News Sentinel is a daily newspaper in Knoxville, Tennessee, USA owned by the E. W. Scripps Company. It operates Knoxnews. com, an award-winning news website. The newspaper was formed in 1926 from the merger of two competing newspapers: The Knoxville News and The Knoxville Sentinel. John Trevis Hearn began publishing The Sentinel in December 1886, while The News was started in 1921 by Robert P. Scripps and Roy W. Howard. The two merged in 1926, with the first edition of The Knoxville News-Sentinel appearing on November 21 of that year. In 1986 the News-Sentinel became a morning paper, with the other paper in Knoxville, the Knoxville Journal, becoming an evening paper. The Journal ceased publication as a daily in 1991, when the joint operating agreement between the two papers expired. In 2002 the paper dropped the hyphen from its name to become the Knoxville News Sentinel. The News Sentinel's president and publisher is Patrick J. Birmingham, and its editor is Jack McElroy, formerly of the Rocky Mountain News. Other management includes Managing Editor Tom Chester, MultiMedia Editor Jack Lail, Metro Editor John North, Visuals Editor Jigsha Desai and Graphics Editor Dan Proctor. Staffers include photographers Michael Patrick, J. Miles Cary, Amy Smotherman-Burgess, Adam Brimer and Saul Young; and writers John Adams, Mike Strange, Sam Venable, Frank Munger, Rebecca Ferrar, Tom Humphrey, Jamie Satterfield, Josh Flory and Carly Harrington. Knoxnews. com staffers include online producers Lauren Spuhler, Erin Chapin, and Talid Magdy. Knoxnews. com has won many national awards, including winning three 2008 Digital Edge Awards from the Newspaper Association of America for best overall news website, most innovative user-participation and best site design. The News Sentinel has sponsored four winners of the Scripps National Spelling Bee: 1940: Laura Kuykendall (now Laura Kuykendall Mullins) - "therapy" 1960: Henry Feldman - "eudaemonic" 1963: Glen Van Slyke III - "equipage" 1994: Ned Andrews - "antediluvian"
