Renss Greene is a Gloucester native and recent graduate of Emory & Henry College. He has previously worked in broadcast and print media, including Holston Valley Broadcasting Corporation in Kingsport, Tenn., and the Smyth County News & Messenger in Marion.

“I’m excited to join this community,” said Greene. “I’m glad to be reporting at an excellent local paper like the Record, and I’m eager to get to know the people in this area.”

“We look forward to having Greene on our community news team,” said editor Robert Mason Jr.

Greene’s beats will include Northumberland County government and schools, and the Town of Kilmarnock. He also will help cover local sports.

The addition of a full-time reporter enables the news department to restructure its beats, noted Mason.

Audrey Thomasson will continue to cover Lancaster County government and schools as well as the Town of Irvington.

Lisa Hinton-Valdrighi will cover the Town of White Stone and continue to serve as the primary sports reporter. She is also expected to produce more feature stories.

All three will continue to share spot news, general news and feature assignments.

Shannon Rice will continue as a part-time reporter until she begins her teaching career in August at St. Margaret’s School in Tappahannock.

July and August will be transition months as the reporters adjust to their beats, said Mason.

Meanwhile, publisher Fred Gaskins will temporarily take on more of the day-to-day editorial duties while Mason is fighting cancer. Mason plans to resume his full-time work load by the end of August.
