Lovett Makes Exit From Journalism

Lovett Makes Exit From Journalism

John Lovett, an eight-year fixture at the Southwest Times Record in Fort Smith, has joined a parade of journalists giving up daily newspaper work.

Late last month, the University of Arkansas at Little Rock graduate announced he was joining the UA’s Division of Agriculture as a science writer.

A regional editor since 2019, Lovett served the Gannett Co. and previous GateHouse Media property as a business writer and assistant editor.

“It has been an honor to serve you as both a reporter seeking the facts and an editor seeking your truth,” Lovett wrote in a farewell to readers.
