Veteran newspaper reporter Dan Richman joined the staff of the Whidbey News-Times this week.

Richman will be covering business and county government for the News-Times as well as the Whidbey Examiner and South Whidbey Record.

A native of Chicago, Richman has lived on Whidbey Island for 22 years.

After brief stints writing about health care and the judiciary, he wrote for several major newspapers in the computer trade press for four years.

He then covered business and technology for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer for 10 years until that paper’s demise in 2009.

After a hiatus freelancing for MSNBC and other outlets, he covered U.S. and non-E.U. news for Smart Grid Today, a daily subscription-only newsletter detailing efforts to computerize and modernize the world’s electricity-delivery systems.

“We’re excited to have a journalist with Dan’s experience joining an already amazing editorial team,” said Keven Graves, editor and publisher for the Whidbey News Group.

Richman has written two books: a students’ biography of Jimmy Carter and a baby-name book, “From Aaron to Zoe.”

He recently edited and produced “Drive or Die,” a harrowing true-crime story by Whidbey resident Mark Tucker.

Richman lives in Langley.
