About George Spohr

George Spohr is a Brooklyn native who grew up in upstate New York.

As a child, George used to create his own daily newspaper on a word processor, distributing copies to neighbors. His love of newspapers continued through middle school, when he worked as a movie critic for his hometown paper, and high school, when he began his career as a reporter at the Gannett-owned Observer-Dispatch in Utica, N.Y.

This is his third stint as executive editor: His first two were with Lee Enterprises, where he led newsrooms at The World in Coos Bay, Ore., and The Sentinel, in Carlisle, Pa. For his work there, George was named one of Editor & Publisher's Top 25 Under 35 newspaper executives in the country.

In his free time, George enjoys flight lessons, spending time with his family, hiking and swimming.
