As you know, the landscape for local sports reporting has changed drastically since early 2017… and HobbsDailyReport is an established option – we debuted 16 months ago — for the fans of sports in the Greater Hickory area that have been following local news for so many years.
Chris Hobbs is the only reporter/editor who has been with you for all these seasons – year No. 43 begins on Monday – and, at age 60, he’s determined to stay active through at least 2020 in order to reach having reported on the area in six different decades (1970s, 80s, 90s, 00s, 10s and 20s).
