In Case You Missed It — I’m Out

For those who haven’t heard or read on a couple of other blogs, there will be a change in Whittier coming next week.

As of Tuesday, San Gabriel Valley Tribune Area College Coordinator Steve Ramirez will move over here and take over as the Daily News Prep Sports and Area College Editor.

Please welcome Steve into the fold. Mr. Ramirez is the dean of San Gabriel Valley Preps Sports and has been in the industry for 75 years (j/k of course). Steve worked down here in 2006 with my former boss, Roger Murray, and has a good knowledge of the schools and area colleges (which is good for Biola University, Rio Hondo and Whittier colleges).

I, Andrew J. Campa, am stepping down as of Tuesday to take a new job. I’d like to thank everyone over the last four years who has made the job fun. I have had a blast and have really enjoyed working in the greater Whittier area. It’s sad to leave but the coverage is in good shape with Steve. My focus during my time was to write as many different types of stories as possible and get as many kids coverage as possible. With that, this blog and the videos weren’t my priority and weren’t kept up to date. I’m sure that’s going to change with Steve, who is quite the blogger and video guy. Plus, in the coming weeks, this blog will be merging with that of both the Pasadena Star-News and Tribune blog, all coordinated by Fred J. Robledo.
With that, I again thank everyone and wish the Whittier area teams all the luck in the world. I’m out.

    Hey Andrew,
    Although I wouldn’t agree with some of your football picks, it was a pleasure reading your articles. Good luck and take care .

    Just a quicknnote to wish you well. It was always nice to see you on the sidelines when the Ranch played. When you covered the Ranch, you were always fair.

    We hope Steve will be on the sidelines but with the addition of both the whittier and SGV areas; we hope that the stringers get assigned to the Ranch and the whittier schools are not forgotten.

    Best of luck to you

    Andrew,

    Best of luck to you. I hope that Steve will follow in your footsteps and cover all prep sports, not just football, basketball, and baseball.
