Tom Humphrey, Nashville bureau chief, retiring

Tom Humphrey, the News Sentinel’s long-time bureau chief in Nashville and a superlative journalist and good guy, is retiring, effective July 31 (tomorrow). He was at the newspaper’s home base in Knoxville today, where the staff got a chance to say good things about him and munch on a potluck feast. He’s pictured here with Managing Editor Tom Chester, left, and Rebecca Ferrar, retired political reporter, at right. The bad news, of course, is that Humphrey is retiring and won’t be producing copy at his legendary rate. The good news is that he won’t disappear entirely  but will continue to freelance for the newspaper and share his political wisdom and knowledge of how things work (or don’t work) in the state’s capital. Good luck, Tom.
