The Brewton Standard Publisher Kendra Majors said Frye is a great addition to the newspaper’s team.

“Community journalism, especially local sports coverage, is important to us at The Brewton Standard, and to our readers, and I’m confident that Josh will help us fulfill that mission,” Majors said. “He will quickly become a familiar face to the Greater Brewton community, and I’m sure our readers will enjoy what he brings to the table.”
