APR welcomes a new reporter

Eddie Burkhalter moved to Alabama from his home state of Georgia in 2001. While studying social work at Jacksonville State University, he took a job at a local weekly newspaper and a few years later moved on to that company’s daily, The Anniston Star.
He spent almost a decade at The Star, covering education, business, crime, politics and winning numerous Alabama Press Association awards for his coverage. His work has been picked up by The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Guardian, The Rachel Maddow Show, All in with Chris Hayes and numerous other national news outlets.
In 2019, he was selected to participate in the Poynter-Koch Media and Journalism fellowship program.

“We are excited to have Eddie joining our staff at APR,” said Editor-in-Chief Bill Britt. “Eddie’s professional integrity and experience are a welcome addition to our fine team of reporters.
