As I leave, I want to say thank you …

Everybody, we have some news: I’m moving to another newspaper and no longer will be editing The Daily Bama Blog.

Don’t worry, because the Tennessee Valley Printing Company is working toward bringing a new Alabama beat writer aboard, and that person will manage the blog. Also, correspondent Brett Hudson will continue to contribute regular reports, too, on various Alabama sports. I’m certain you’ll get the same quality and consistency in updates you’ve grown accustomed to seeing when you visit this corner of the Internet.

I can’t tell you how much fun it’s been editing this blog. It’s been the best part of covering the Alabama beat, because blogs allow us to reach readers in so many different ways. If I saw a cool video or a bit of odd news from another source, I immediately thought about how the blog readers might enjoy knowing about it, too, and posted it here.

I’ve worked at The Decatur Daily for 22 years, including the past nine as sports editor. I covered Alabama as either a beat writer or columnist for 18 of those years, including four national championship teams (1992, 2009, 2011 and 2012). It’s hard to leave, but I’ve found a new challenge: I’ll serve as sports editor of The Anniston Star.

Thank you for visiting and supporting the blog. It meant more than you know.

Mark Edwards
