“Tim was not looking to come back into the daily newspaper business, but fortunately when our offer came his way, it motivated him to do so,” said Jan Griffey, general manager of The Vicksburg Post. “We need him, are glad he is back. I am thrilled to work further with him, as are people at The Post he worked with for several years. And, I expect the broad Vicksburg community will be happy to have him writing for and guiding our newsroom again. Tim and his family love Vicksburg, and Vicksburg has been good to them.”

Before leaving The Post in 2017, Reeves, a native of Silverhill, Alabama, had worked with Boone Newspapers, the parent company of The Vicksburg Post, for nearly 20 years. During his time away, Reeves continued to help a number of newspaper and media companies, both within Boone Newspapers and outside the company.

Tim, and his wife Stephanie, have three children — Sarah Cameron (13), Clayton (7) and Fin (5) — and are members of First Baptist Church Vicksburg.

“When I decided to step away from the newspaper business, I had no plans to return. My goal was to find a way to spend more time with my family and on community projects that I had a passion for. During that time, God has provided and allowed all of that to happen,” Reeves said. “While I am not a native of Vicksburg, this community has a way of drawing you in, drawing you close and our family is better for having moved in here in 2014.”

Reeves is a member of the United Way of West Central Mississippi Board of Directors and most recently served as chair in 2018. He is also a member of the board of the Vicksburg Girls Softball Association.

“I know and appreciate the rich history The Vicksburg Post has in serving Vicksburg and Warren County. For nearly four years, I got to be a part of that history, a part of that service,” he said.

“And, that more than anything, was the biggest part of returning.”
