State/Regional Reporter | Minnesota/Upper Midwest
Reid Forgrave covers Minnesota and the Upper Midwest for the Star Tribune. He started at the paper in September 2019, returning to his newspaper storytelling roots after eight years as a national sportswriter for FOXSports.com and CBSSports.com.
Prior to his foray into sportswriting, Forgrave wrote people-focused feature stories for several newspapers around the country, most recently The Des Moines Register. In Iowa, Reid was a general assignment reporter focusing on long-form storytelling. He wrote a narrative on a tornado-wracked small town and its inspirational high school football team, covered every angle of Iowa's gay marriage debate, and wrote a series about a woman who was seven months pregnant with her fifth child when her husband died in a plane crash. After his stint in Iowa, he worked as a national sports feature writer for FOXSports.com, and helped launch the national sports television network, Fox Sports 1, as national college basketball reporter. Most recently, Forgrave worked at CBSSports.com and CBS Sports HQ covering college hoops and the NBA.
He also has written for The New York Times Magazine and GQ magazine. His first book, based on a piece he wrote for GQ, will be published in 2020. He lives in Minneapolis with his wife and two sons.
