Kenneth Rice
Kenneth Rice - Chief Editor
Kenneth is a veteran journalist who started his career back in 1987 when journalists used ballpoint pens, notepads, and good old fashioned legwork to track down stories. He’s since embraced the digital tools his younger colleagues favor, but he refuses to move on from the core principles of journalism: fact-checking, protecting sources, and journalistic integrity.
