The Head of The Hook

May 4, 2012

We meet Hawes Spencer, the founder and editor of fearless Charlottesville indy newspaper The Hook.

He arrived in Charlottesville in 1989 to co-found C-ville Weekly, but after being unceremoniously ousted from that gig in 2002, he found steady employment with The Hook, which has won dozens of journalism awards under his leadership.
