Five days ago, we said farewell to Zac Jackson. Today, we say hello to Michael Gehlken.
The former Chargers reporter at the San Diego Union-Tribune, whose position there went away when the team did, joins us on an open-ended arrangement with the understanding that he may soon secure another opportunity to cover a West Coast franchise.
A San Diego native with a degree from UC Davis (and maybe a Ken O’Brien jersey), Gehlken joined the Union-Tribune in 2012. We’ve long admired his work, and we are very fortunate to have him (and we probably won’t be fortunate enough to have him for very long).
Please give him a warm welcome in the comments. Or make him feel at home by treating him like you treat the rest of us.
