Bio:
Louie Brogdon began reporting with the Chattanooga Times Free Press in February 2013. Before he came to the Scenic City, Louie lived on St. Simons Island, Ga. and covered crime, courts, environment and government at the Brunswick News, a 17,000-circulation daily on the Georgia coast. While there, he was awarded for investigative reporting on police discipline and other law enforcement issues by the Georgia Press Association. For the Times Free Press, Louie covers Hamilton County government and environmental issues. Louie was born and raised in McDonough, Ga., and he graduated from the University of Georgia's Grady School of Journalism and Mass Communication in 2009. While in school, he worked full-time managing a coffee shop and bar and wrote op-ed pieces for the Red & Black, the independent, student-run newspaper that covers university issues. When he's not reporting, Louie enjoys cooking, reading, gardening, building computers, singing (in private) and playing the guitar badly. His lovely girlfriend is Meghan Pittman, and his best pal is Dr. Argos Heimdllar Fenrir — a most exceptional black labrador. Contact Louie at 423-757-6481 or at lbrogdon@timesfreepress.com.
