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 news reporters Gail Perry and Hannah Campbell and sports writers Mark Wiedmer, John Hunt, Randy Smith, Dan Fleser, James Beach, and Richard Roberts. Editors include Marcy Bryant, Jenny Gienapp, Robbie Wilson and Jana Hinton. Greg Davick is the Sports Editor and Dennis Norwood is the Prep Sports Editor. M.A. Locke is a valued photographer. Many beautiful photos and entertainment news are contributed by Mark Herndon, while James Boofer provides many sports photos. Wes Schulz and Lawson Whitaker contributed many more wonderful photos during their lives.
 

Our regular contributors include a number of talented writers: Roy Exum, John Shearer, Ferris Robinson, Harmon Jolley, Bob Tamasy, Jerry Summers and others. Technical support is by Ed Sunder.

Doug and Dael Hoyt have handled our financial matters from the start, and this online newspaper would not be possible without them. 

Ed Sunder developed our unique redesign that we believe will serve as a blueprint for many similar full-service web-only daily newspapers around the United States and the world. Contact us concerning how we can help you set up a similar Internet newspaper in your city using our model.
