Chris Hobbs from the Hobbs Daily Report

CHRIS HOBBS, which turns 3 on April 1, provides the most timely and complete means to follow the area’s student-athletes… from the schedule of games through results and details at night and standings so readers will know exactly what is going on in conference races.

Our site is owned by Myra Hobbs and husband Chris Hobbs is the website’s editor and content coordinator. He is in his 44th season of providing coverage for local student-athletes in the Greater Hickory area.

With the decline of local sports coverage in the newspaper industry — four newspapers in Kentucky completely eliminated their sports departments this week — we’re a viable option for readers to pick up their sports news.

The cost to read a print publication like The Hickory Daily Record annually is more than $330.’s base coverage is free and we have premium content at $8.95 a month or $85 for a full school year.

Why visit our website regularly or advertise on our website?

We are timely, accurate  and know the region, area and state.

Also, Chris Hobbs — the longest-tenured active sports writer/editor in Western North Carolina — spent more than 40 years covering high school athletics at five different newspapers: the Hickory Daily Record (two tenures), The Lenoir News-Topic, The Gaston(ia) Gazette, The Charlotte Observer and The Salisbury Post.

We encourage you to join our team and support local high school student-athletes.
