Robert Smith

Robert Smith has been hired as editor/multimedia journalist for the Pawhuska Journal-Capital, Journal-Capital Publisher Matt Tranquill said.

Smith comes to the Journal-Capital from a job at a Tulsa grocery store chain, but he has decades of newspaper experience.

Most recently, he worked for Neighborhood Newspapers at the Skiatook and Owasso papers. He also has worked at newspapers in Mississippi.

“Smith’s journalism experience will be a big plus for the Pawhuska Journal-Capital. He already is developing stories and sources in Pawhuska and Barnsdall, and plans to reach out to Hominy, Wynona and other Osage County communities soon,” Tranquill said.

Smith is training at the Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise, but will soon be operating from the Pawhuska Journal-Capital’s new office at 1020 Lynn Street, Suite A, in Pawhuska.
