Colvard named editor of Tribune, Ripple


ELKIN — Bill Colvard has been named editor of The Elkin Tribune, The Yadkin Ripple, and On The Vine Magazine.

The Elkin native and former local business owner assumes the post after serving five years as a reporter for The Mount Airy News.

Earlier this year, Colvard was singled out for his popular weekly column in The News by the North Carolina Press Association when he took first place in the Serious Columns category of the association’s annual press awards. He’ll be writing his column for the Elkin Tribune now, though it will continue to appear in The Mount Airy News.
