Gerald Witt is a journalist living in downtown Knoxville. He's been a staff writer at several newspapers in the Southeast, most recently the Knoxville News Sentinel, and received local, state, and national recognition for his work. Now he teaches journalism at the University of Tennessee and writes at beerandfoodweekly.com in addition to his work here. When he's not chasing stories, he can be found on a run, with a beer, or traveling the world. When he's lucky, all three at once.
