Reno Mayor Honors Longtime Journalist With Guy Clifton Day
RENO, Nev. (AP) — The city of Reno is honoring longtime Nevada journalist and author Guy Clifton.
Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve declared Wednesday Guy Clifton Day in recognition of his more than two decades of work at the Reno Gazette-Journal before he was let go last month in another round of staff reductions.
She issued a proclamation describing him as a "renown[ed] and respected journalist who has dedicated his entire career to covering Nevada and Nevada history."
Clifton was born in the tiny town of Gabbs and got his journalism degree at the University of Nevada, Reno. He worked for The Record Courier in Gardnerville, and the Tahoe Bonanza and Tahoe World before joining the Reno newspaper, where he covered sports and human interest stories and became a nationally recognized rodeo writer.
