Bulldogs Beat

Who is Jason Butt?

Jason Butt joined The Telegraph and Macon.com on Monday as the Georgia sports beat writer. Here’s a look at Butt’s background.

Hometown: Watkinsville.

High school: Oconee County.

College (year graduated): Georgia (2009).

Previous jobs: CBSSports.com, The Washington Post.

Non-job related interests: My main hobby is record collecting. I’m a huge music fan, with Jack White (The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather and his solo stuff) my favorite. I love going to concerts and seeing new bands.

Why Macon?: It was a great opportunity to move back to my home state and cover a top tier college football program. Plus, from what my friend and former Telegraph employee David Hale told me, there aren’t too many places where you’ll enjoy everyone from the top down such as it is at The Telegraph. I feel fortunate to come on board.
