About John Peters

John Peters, Editor, has worked at the Mount Airy News for four years. He recently took on the additional duties of Regional Editor for Civitas Media and, while he greatly enjoys editing and working with his staff, he still counts among his favorite parts of the job finding that gem of a story in unusual places, or talking with people who can tell him what local life was like 30 or 50 (or more) years ago. He and his wife have five children and an always-changing number of assorted other creatures.
