Phone: 678-620-7320 Hometown: Atlanta, Georgia Birthday: May 28 Bio: Hunt took a keen interest in writing at a young age and brings more than 25 years of professional journalism experience to Patch. Since February 2013, he has served as a Senior Community Editor at Patch. Prior to that he served as a Local Editor for both the Midtown (February 2012-February 2013) and Smyrna-Vinings (September 2010-February 2012) Patch sites. Prior to that, he was the Sports Editor of The Sunday Paper located on Atlanta's westside. Born at Georgia Baptist Hospital (now Atlanta Medical Center), Hunt was raised in Atlanta and has worked at several news outlets across the city and region. A former on-air personality for what is now known as mtvU, Hunt has enjoyed stints behind the mic in radio and television, but recognizes that his true expressive love is the written word. A graduate of both The Lovett School and North Carolina State University, Hunt doesn't take himself too seriously and sometimes talks in what has been described as a mumble-drawl-lisp. Hunt's Beliefs: "At Patch, we promise always to report the facts as objectively as possible and otherwise adhere to the principles of good journalism. However, we also acknowledge that true impartiality is impossible because human beings have beliefs. So in the spirit of simple honesty, our policy is to encourage our editors to reveal their beliefs to the extent they feel comfortable. This disclosure is not a license for you to inject your beliefs into stories or to dictate coverage according to them. In fact, the intent is the opposite: we hope that the knowledge that your beliefs are on the record will cause you to be ever mindful to write, report and edit in a fair, balanced way. And if you ever see evidence that we failed in this mission, please let us know." Politics - How would you describe your political beliefs? "I tend to be on the more moderate side of things as I like to take each issue on a case-by-case basis. Overall, though, it is my goal to be fair and give everyone the benefit of the doubt, especially in my coverage." Are you registered with a certain party? "No" Religion - How religious would you consider yourself? (casual, observant, devout, non religious) "I would consider myself an observant Christian. I grew up in the church and my faith remains a very important part of my life. I'm accepting of all religions, however, and enjoy exploring how different people view spirituality."
