Conservative columnist Drew Johnson has been named as the opinion editor for the Free Press editorial page.

He succeeds Lee Anderson, who retired in April as the Free Press editorial page editor after 70 years with the newspaper.

Johnson helped found and direct the Tennessee Center for Policy Research, a government watchdog group in Nashville. For the past two and a half years, he has been a senior fellow for the Taxpayer Protection Alliance in Nashville and Washington D.C. and a weekly columnist for Newsmax.

A native of Johnson City, Tenn., Johnson earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from Belmont University in Nashville and a master’s degree in public policy from Pepperdine University in Malibu, Calif.

His editorials and weekly column will begin appearing on the Free Press editorial page on July 1.
