Hi, there. I’m Bryan Hanks, the managing editor of The Free Press in Kinston, N.C., and the managing editor of The Jones Post in Trenton, N.C. For nearly six years, I was the sports editor of The Free Press, but I took over the new position on July 7, 2008.
I’ve worked for the Gaston (N.C.) Gazette, the Shelby (N.C.) Star and the Lincoln (N.C.) Times News. I’ve also free-lanced or strung for more than 30 papers, including the Chicago Sun-Times, the Charlotte Observer, the Raleigh News and Observer and the Winston-Salem Journal.
Within this blog, you will find out everything that’s going on in news, sports and entertainment in and around Kinston. You’ll get exclusive content and contests here that you can’t get in The Free Press or anywhere else.
It’s not going to all be about sports and news, though. From time to time, I’ll let you know what’s going on in my head — if it’s not too scary.
I’d like this blog to be sort of a poor man’s version of the genius — Steve Czaban’s — Web site. Czaban’s is the perfect Web log — he has everything on there a man loves (sports, women and columns). I suggest you check it out: it’s awesome.
Most of all, this blog is about you. I want to know what you think about sports in our area. Never hesitate to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know how to improve this blog or The Free Press.
