Sports Editor for the Daily News Journal, Monte Hale, Jr. is no longer the Sports Editor with the local paper. Hale made the announcement via Twitter on Tuesday evening. In the tweet, he did not give any reason as to why he was no longer with the DNJ as the Sports Editor, as seen above.
Hale, who hosts All Sports Talk on WGNS weekday afternoons at 2pm, has been a substantial part of the newspaper for the past 25-years. Hale will be on the radio Wednesday afternoon with MTSU Ladies Basketball Coach Rick Insell. No word yet on if Hale will discuss his departure from the paper on Wednesday or not. Regardless, you can continue to hear Monte daily.
It now looks as if several others may have been let go as well. Those reports are being confirmed at this time.
