Lee Horton named Peninsula Daily News sports editor

By Peninsula Daily News staff

PORT ANGELES — Lee Horton, a sports writer and and outdoors columnist with the Peninsula Daily News since April 2012, has been named the newspaper's new sports editor.

Horton succeeds Brad LaBrie, sports editor since 1998 who died Aug. 31 of complications from a stroke.

“Although the sports editor vacancy comes under difficult and bittersweet circumstances, I know you'll want to join me in congratulating Lee,” Executive Editor Rex Wilson said in a memo to the PDN news staff Monday.

Before joining the PDN, Horton earned a master's degree in sports journalism from Indiana University in December 2011.

He grew up in the Salt Lake City area, where he spent five years working in sports radio while completing an undergraduate degree at the University of Utah.

He and his wife, Lisa, have one daughter.

Wilson said a search has begun for a sports writer/outdoors columnist for the position Horton vacates.

Horton can be reached at 360-417-3525 or at lhorton@peninsuladailynews.com.
