Chattanoogan.com was launched Sept. 1, 1999, as one of the first full-service web-only daily newspapers in the country. Since that date, it has proven to be a pace-setter in the rapidly-developing field of Internet news publishing and has drawn a wide following and readership.
Publisher is John Wilson, who was a staff writer for 28 years for the Chattanooga Free Press.
Those involved early included Chris Cairns, Michaela Miller, Xavier Cabezas, Shane Ashley, Jim Ashley, Irby Park and Tad Evearitt.
Other key members of Chattanoogan.com include sports writers Stan Crawley, John Hunt, B.B. Branton, Jaime Barrett, Tim Evearitt, Randy Smith and Larry Fleming, sports editors and writers Greg and Sara Davick, and writers Judy Frank, Matthew Smisson, Gail Perry, Claire Henley and Wendy King. Judy Bryan is our talented web ad designer. Editors include Marcy Bryant, Jenny Gienapp, Tammy Bacon and Jana Hinton. Copy editor is Mike Brown. Wesley Schultz, Dennis Norwood and M.A. Locke are valued photographers. Mark Herndon and Carmen and Patrick O'Hagan are regular contributors from the music scene, and Fil Manley covers many festivals.
Our regular contributors include a number of talented writers: Roy Exum, Ferris Robinson, John Shearer and others. Bob Payne is the entertainment editor and Harmon Jolley the memories editor. Charles and Diane Siskin provide travel and dining articles and Anne Yungmeyer travel pieces. Technical support is by Ed Sunder.
