&uot;I’m looking forward to working at The Democrat and in Natchez and Concordia Parish,&uot; he said. &uot;From my visits here, it seems that people in the Miss-Lou are just as passionate about high school and college athletics as I am. I hope to provide them with the sports coverage they crave.&uot;

Democrat editor Stacy Graning said Weber’s experience and enthusiasm will be a boost to the sports coverage. &uot;Nick possesses a solid understanding of how a community newspaper should cover sports, and his enthusiasm and talents will be a benefit to all our readers.&uot;
