The Dodge City Daily Globe welcomed a new staff member on Monday. Chris Guinn has joined the newsroom as a general news reporter.
Guinn hails from St. Petersburg, Fla. and is a graduate of the University of South Florida St. Petersburg and St. Petersburg College, where he studied journalism.
Previously Guinn worked in IT but his passion for news drew him to journalism. He has worked as Managing Editor of his college newspaper The Crow’s Nest and has done freelance reporting for The Tampa Bay Times and The Wall Street Journal. Guinn said he has a passion for local news and aspires to be a good city reporter.
Guinn has an older brother back home in Florida and a younger sister in Atlanta. He married his wife Molly in March. He said he has started to learn the ukulele and has an interest in photography.
“We’re excited to have Chris with us here at the Globe,” Conrad Easterday, general manager, said. “He brings a particular skill set that we think will be useful for covering the community and its government.”
