The Times-Journal announced Monday the addition of Daniel Evans to the newspaper’s editorial staff.
Evans, who is a native of West Blocton in Bibb County, is a December graduate of the University of Alabama-Birmingham, where he earned his degree in journalism.
“I’m excited to join the great team at The Selma Times-Journal,” Evans said. “The newspaper already has a tremendous staff in place, and I’m hoping to make it even stronger.”
Evans, who will work as a staff writer, will primarily focus on sports in the Selma and Dallas County area.
“I have always wanted to write sports. Selma offers a large variety of sports to cover and I’m excited to get started covering all the local events and teams,” Evans said.
Evans joins the Times-Journal’s newsroom consisting of reporters Sarah Cook, Ashley Johnson and Katie Wood as well as summer interns Sarah Mahan and Roderick Mitchell.
“Daniel is a great addition to our newsroom team and someone I’m excited to join the Selma community,” Times-Journal editor Tim Reeves said. “Throughout the interview and recruitment process, I have had the chance to get to know Daniel and expect the community will really embrace him, as they have done others on our team.”
