Richard Craver, reporter
Richard Craver covers regional business news and the health care industry. “With business,” he says, “I end up doing a lot of manufacturing, local economy and a lot of job-cut stories.” The health care stories focus on “how health care has become an economic drive in our community,” he adds. Health care topics include facilities administration, employment issues and public health services as well as company news and personnel changes. Craver requests that anyone pitching a story idea be aware of the current economic situation in the region. He prefers to receive information that could be beneficial to area residents and consumers. Pitch him via e-mail; he accepts photos and attachments.
The Winston-Salem Journal provides local and regional news to residents in northwest North Carolina. It has a daily circulation of approximately 79,000.
