About Will Sutton
SUTTON, WILL is the Scripps Howard Endowed Professor at the Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communications at Hampton University in Hampton, VA. This fall, he'll be teaching feature writing and advanced editing and writing. Among various publications, he worked at the Philadelphia Inquirer as a reporter and editor for more than a decade before becoming the managing editor then the editor at Knight Ridder's Post-Tribune in Gary, IN. After five and a half years in Indiana, he joined McClatchy's News & Observer in Raleigh, where he oversaw the paper's partnership with market-leading WRAL-TV, a family-owned CBS affiliate, and helped ramp up the paper's online content. He's been at Hampton, his alma mater, for three years. He is a past NABJ president (1999-2001) and a co-founder of what came to be UNITY: Journalists of Color. An Eagle Scout, he enjoys camping, fishing and the outdoors, mostly as an assistant scoutmaster with his son's Boy Scout troop in Apex, NC. Because he spends so much time away from home during the academic year, he enjoys doing household and yard chores and doing whatever his wife wishes when he's home. He does enjoy going to movies, seeing art and plays and, as a real New Orleanian would, he loves food and people.
