Meet Chalkbeat Tennessee bureau chief Daarel Burnette

After we announced the creation of Chalkbeat a few weeks ago, we promised we would continue to give you updates on what’s going on behind the scenes. Today, we want to introduce you to Chalkbeat Tennessee’s bureau chief Daarel Burnette.

In this video interview, Daarel talks about why he decided to join the Chalkbeat team and how readers can help his reporting team cover one of its “focus area” topics.

Also, get to know our other bureau chiefs by checking our their interviews here:
