About Us

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 News-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 John Hunt, Tim Evearitt, Randy Smith, Paul Payne, James Beach and Larry Fleming, sports editors and writers Greg and Sara Davick, and writers Judy Frank and Gail Perry. Editors include Marcy Bryant, Jenny Gienapp and Jana Hinton. Dennis Norwood and M.A. Locke are valued photographers. Many beautiful photos are contributed by Lawson Whitaker. Mark Herndon and Carmen and Patrick O'Hagan are regular contributors from the music scene.

Our regular contributors include a number of talented writers: Roy Exum, John Shearer  and others. Technical support is by Ed Sunder.
