First, I apologize for not introducing myself a few days ago.
My name is Doug Roberson, and I am the new beat reporter for Georgia Tech. Trying to follow Ken and Larry, and and MIke and Matt before them, won’t be easy.
I was the college sports and golf editor at the AJC, but was given this opportunity last week.
A bit about myself:
I’m an Atlanta native. I grew up in Mableton (near Six Flags), or Mablevegas, as it’s sometimes humorously called. Graduated from Pebblebrook High (go fightin’ Falcons) in ‘88. Played soccer, a lot of soccer.
Went to Oglethorpe, transferred to UGA to major in journalism. (Attending Georgia doesn’t mean that I hate every other school).
After graduating, I worked at several papers in North Carolina, then moved to Florida for a bit, then to Virginia for many years, before finally coming home.
I went to a few Tech football games when I was a young ‘un, and ate more hot dogs at the Varsity than I can remember.
Please don’t hestitate to send your ideas on things you’d like to see covered to my email address at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll be twittering, as well, at ajcgatech, if you’d like to follow me.
