Now more than ever, Lamar County residents want the news that matters most from a source they can trust who reports the facts, not spreads fear. Our team of journalists at myparistexas.com works hard to bring our readers what they want and as the need for reliable news increases, our news team continues to grow with the hire of news reporter, Trent Reed.
“The recent developments with COVID-19 has increased demand for fact-based, unbiased news with no left-leaning agenda. We are growing our team with Trent Reed as a reporter,” said 1st Street Media president James Wyatt. “He will be an integral part of the myparsitexas.com brand and the redevelopment of our digital studio space on 1st Street.”
Reed joins the 1st Street Media family with nearly five years of experience as a journalist/photographer working within Lamar County.
“During a brief hiatus from reporting, I realized I missed the job – especially since it’s something I enjoy,” said Reed. “I’m more than excited to get back into what I know and enjoy and I can’t wait to see where my career with MyParisTexas.com leads. It’s like Mark Twain once said, ‘Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life.’”
Born and raised in Paris, Texas, Reed graduated from Roxton High School in 2009 and knew from a young age he wanted to be a journalist.
“Telling stories about the community that helped raise me is what I love most about this job. Paris has so many untold stories that I love finding and sharing with our readers,” added Reed.
Wyatt said Reed’s experience and connections within the community will greatly enhance the level of commitment myparistexas.com has in providing the best local news coverage.
“It’s rare to find journalists in this new age of modern news with the ethics and standards that our newest feature reporter Trent Reed has and will bring to our news product. Trent embodies our motto of rapid, reliable and respected.”
