Editor a longtime sports fan


Candice Rohrman, a recent IU graduate, is sports editor at The Paper of Montgomery County.

Candice Rohrman started as sports editor for The Paper of Montgomery County on Jan. 1.

She joins a small but elite group of female sports editors in Indiana.

“Since I was 10 years old, all I wanted to do was watch sports,” Rohrman said in a story published at www.thepaper24-7.com. “I watch ESPN a lot.”

Rohrman grew up in Fishers and graduated from Hamilton Southeastern High School.

In 2010 she earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism with a minor in kinesiology (the science of human movement) from Indiana University.

During the summer of 2009, she began working at the Indiana Daily Student and joined The Paper of Montgomery County in October as a reporter.

The Paper’s editor, Frank Phillips, said Rohrman made it clear in her interview that she was interested in covering sports.

“It will be nice to get a bit of a different perspective while we continue to cover the games, events and people that make up Montgomery County’s rich sports heritage,” he said in a story on the paper’s website.

Rohrman replaces John Groth, who came to The Paper from the Daily Journal (Franklin) more than four years ago.

Groth will join the sports department of the News Enterprise in Elizabethtown, Ky.
