Carlisle, Pa.--What became a life-long passion started out as a daily edition published on carbon paper using a Smith Corona typewriter.
At only 8 years old, George Spohr knew exactly what he wanted to be when he grew up.
“I was really immersed in news at a young age,” the New York native said. “I’ve loved journalism since I was a kid.”
Back then, the Spohr News Report was little more than a neighborhood newsletter with a circulation of five to six readers, tops. But it was his product — a fond memory to hold onto in his climb up the career ladder.
Today, Spohr takes charge as editor of The Sentinel. He replaces Hope Stephan, who left the newspaper in early March.
