By Kevin Eck 

Richard Skinner has been named digital sports columnist and editor for Cincinnati CBS affiliate WKRC.

According to the Sinclair-owned station, Skinner will cover all levels of sports, “write blogs, opinion pieces, both long- and short-form stories, conduct video interviews and more.”

Skinner has worked at the Gannett-owned Cincinnati Enquirer since 2008 as one of the Cincinnati Bengals beat reporters. He also was co-host of The Two Angry Guys, a sports talk morning radio show.

“If you set out to build the best online coverage of all things sports in Cincinnati, the first person you’d hire would be Richard Skinner,” said WKRC news director Kirk Varner. “And that’s exactly what we did. To get his knowledge and unique voice about everything from the Bengals and the Reds – to the high schools across the Tri-State, it’s just a huge win for our users on”
