Stephen George will join The City Paper on January 11 as its new editor in charge of both print and web content, corporate overlords at SouthComm announced today. George is currently editor of the alt-weekly Louisville Eccentric Observer (known colloquially as "LEO"), which is also owned by SouthComm.

George, a Louisville native, has been at LEO since 2005 and editor since May of 2008. He has also held down roles as staff writer, music editor, city editor, and managing editor. According to a SouthComm news release, George says he's "excited" to join a newsroom that covers the city "with the kind of energy and vigor to which I've become accustomed." In an email announcing the move, Liz Garrigan at SouthComm described George as "an aggressive news gatherer and source builder, an excellent craftsman and, not least, a really likeable guy."

He is also a really young guy, just 28, for crying out loud (although he looks at least 29 in the photo). But the Nashville fit looks like a natural: George is a musician who has done time in several bands, including The National Acrobat, which has had some influence on Louisville's indie scene. George tells Pith that as he's "aged" (yeah, please) his tastes have migrated a bit from punk to alt-country, although he still listens to the Ramones.
