Andy Knobel
Deputy Editor, Sports
My Role

I'm responsible for guiding the sports section into print at night, making sure that all the news is accounted for, that the headlines reflect the stories, that the captions describe the pictures and that the stories are accurate and fair. I also post content online and help develop story ideas.
My Biography

I joined The Baltimore Sun’s sports department in 1988 as a copy editor and have worked in sports the past 20 years as a slot editor and late news editor. I was appointed deputy sports copy chief in 2004, sports copy chief in 2006, sports night content editor in 2009 and deputy sports editor in 2010. Before my time on North Calvert Street, I was a sports night editor and reporter for the York (Pa.) Daily Record and a news and sports reporter for The Post Standard in Syracuse, N.Y. I graduated from the New York State School of Industrial and Labor Relations at Cornell University in 1981 and worked as editor-in-chief and managing editor for The Cornell Daily Sun. I live in Hickory Ridge in Columbia with my wife, Julie. We have two children, Alex, a sophomore at Maryland, and Rachel, a sophomore at Atholton.
My Interests

I have helped coach my children over the years in youth soccer, baseball and basketball, and I enjoy biking and tennis. I follow the pro sports teams of my youth -- Mets, not Yankees; Giants, not Jets -- as well as the Orioles and Ravens.
