Jake Kreulen has been named to the Manchester Times editorial staff to cover sports and general assignments.
Kreulen, who has a lengthy background in newspaper, comes to Manchester after spending the past several months as a photographer with the Pensacola News Journal in Pensacola, Florida.
“We are excited to welcome Jake to our team and we can’t wait for the community to see what he is going to do with our sports section, both in print and through our digital outlets,” said Times editor Josh Peterson. “He is a hard worker and he understands the importance of dedicating coverage for all sports on all levels – from professional to youth sports. I think the community is really going to like what he brings to the table.”
Kreulen spent five years as a regional sports editor for The Daily Statesman in Dexter, Missouri and also spent two years as an assistant sports editor at the Daily American Republic in Poplar Bluff, Missouri.
“I am really looking forward to working with all of the coaches and athletes in Coffee County,” said Kreulen. “I think the Manchester Times has a solid history and reputation of producing quality sports content, and I hope that I can live up to that standard. I am quite excited to take on the challenge and I trust that the community can put their trust in the Times.”
In addition to his lengthy newspaper resume, Kreulen’s photography business has led him to photograph several premier sporting events – including Major League Baseball and NFL games as well as the Cal Ripken World Series.
