A familiar face has returned to the Empire-Tribune as the new sports editor.

Caleb McCaig officially took over sports coverage this week.

Caleb graduated in May 2013 with a bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism from Tarleton State University. He immediately came to work for the E-T as a staff writer covering city council, school board, commissioners court and Dublin athletics.

In October 2014 he was promoted to news editor at the Brownwood Bulletin, a sister publication of the E-T.

Caleb said when the opportunity came up to return to Stephenville as the sports editor, it was something he couldn't refuse.

"It was hard to leave Stephenville last year; this is like my second home," he said. "I took the job in Brownwood because it was a great career opportunity, but when this job came open I knew I wanted to come back to Stephenville. Covering sports is something I have always wanted to do and getting to do it in a place with such a rich sports history is a blessing."

Caleb can be reached at his office at 254-968-2379 ext. 250 or 254-716-1926 or by email at cmccaig@empiretribune.com.
