David Thackham

Passionate. Dedicated. Ready.

Hi, I'm David.

I'm the summer sports intern at the Daily Press in Newport News, Va. I recently graduated with a degree in mass communication from Winthrop University in Rock Hill, S.C.

Back when I was in Rock Hill, I was a sports correspondent with newspapers around York County and held over three years of work with Winthrop's student newspaper, The Johnsonian. I've had years of experience covering professional, collegiate and high school athletics, as well as a variety of general assignment beats along the way.

I've had the pleasure to work with several newspapers and media outlets, including the Charlotte Observer, the Rock Hill (S.C.) Herald, Clemson University's IPTAY, The Fort Mill Times, The (Seneca, S.C.) Journal.
