We are very excited to introduce our new staff writer/sportswriter, Blake Faith and he is eager to start this journey with the Record Herald News and introduce himself to the readers and communities.
Faith was born and raised in Decatur, Illinois and has loved writing since he was young. He went to Eisenhower High School and there he played soccer and was a part of different clubs. Following graduation, Faith attended Richland Community College and Eastern Illinois
University and obtained an Associates of Arts with a concentration in media and a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism with a concentration in sports media relations. He worked for a newspaper at the college level and professionally at a small daily newspaper in Fairmont, Minnesota.
When he’s not writing or covering a meeting or game, he loves to listen to music, reading, and watch sporting events. Faith is looking forward to covering sporting events in the Mt. Zion area as well as local news and feature stories.
