Marc Lancaster is a Senior Editor for The Sporting News. He has been a reporter and editor for a variety of print and media outlets including the Washington Times, AOL, Tampa Tribune, and Cincinnati Post. He has also freelanced widely for other publications.
Lancaster posts stories about combat journalism on his blog, World War II on Deadline. "I’m interested in contemporary accounts of the war — words written and broadcast without the benefit of knowing what would happen on Dec. 7, 1941, June 6, 1944 and Aug. 6, 1945," he writes.
This fascination predates Lancaster's professional career. As a boy in Detroit, he spent hours reading old newspapers his grandmother has used to decorate the walls, from Pearl Harbor through Reagan’s election.
