About Larry Sparks
Larry Sparks is the online news editor for the Omaha World-Herald, an 180,000-circulation newspaper that covers a 500-mile main street through all of Nebraska and the western portion of Iowa. His responsibilities include oversight of the portal and news pages of Omaha.com at night as well as assistance with the other sections. Sparks is a native of western Nebraska but moved to the eastern end of the state as a boy. He is a 1984 graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Journalism and has been a "lifer" at the World-Herald, having worked as an intern there before beginning full-time work after graduating from college. Sparks spent most of the past 24 years working on the copy desk as a rim editor, the editor for the regional section and the Page 1 editor. He just recently made the jump into digital journalism, moving to the online edition in October. He spends his autumn cheering on the Nebraska Husker football team, and then changes from red to blue to cheer on the Creighton University Bluejays for basketball.
