Kevin Manahan Joins NJ.com

Kevin Manahan is joining NJ.com as its sports director. The move marks a return to NJ.com for Manahan, as he spent 26 years at The Star-Ledger — the majority as a NFL beat writer and national golf writer. He most recently served as senior NFL editor for USA Today.

“The guy is an incredible reporter and editor with a long history of breaking big stories and a reputation for turning good reporters into great ones,” said Lamar Graham, the chief content officer of NJ.com, in a statement. ”Plus, nobody knows the New Jersey pro and college sports scenes better than he does.”

Manahan begins October 15.
