Veteran journalist Bill Hartlep has been named sports editor for Trib Total Media.

Hartlep will oversee all sports coverage for the company’s print and digital operations and work with the staff of the High School Sports Network to continue providing the most comprehensive coverage of scholastic sports in the region.

“Bill is a true professional with an unfailing passion for his work,” Trib Total Media President and Chief Executive Officer Jennifer Bertetto said. “He loves sports, but more importantly, he loves great journalism, and that devotion will benefit our readers in so many ways.”

Hartlep began his career as a community news reporter with Trib Total Media’s weekly newspapers, eventually becoming assistant sports editor for the Tribune-Review’s print and digital publications in 2010. Since then, he has played a crucial role in sustaining the company’s print presence while building a successful and rapidly expanding digital operation.

“Bill listens to our readers. He wants to provide them with the best coverage possible of pro, college, high school and youth league sports. He cares deeply about his work, and it shows in the products that he and our sports staff produce every day,” said Trib Total Media Executive Editor Sue McFarland.

Hartlep, 38, graduated with honors in 2003 from Point Park and lives in South Park with his wife, Jen, and their two children.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
