I, Chuck Carree, succeeded Barry Cooper as a staff writer here Feb. 2, 1978.
Cooper has done well for himself. He was chief executive officer of Blackvoices.com before it was sold to AOL-Time Warner, friends said. Now he lives in Orlando, Fla., where he does consulting work for ESPN and other media outlets, they said.
He also is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists.
Cooper began working at the StarNews as a sports stringer as an 11th grader.
