It’s getting serious! Your Lost Coast Outpost is super pumped to announce that Freddy Brewster thinks this thang we’ve got going is progressing well enough that he feels ready to take the next logical step: Matching lighthouse tattoos! Yow! 😍😍😍

Freddy Brewster, reporter

OK, we’ll be clear: Brewster, who has served admirably in his role as LoCO’s summer intern, has agreed to join the teal team full time as the latest addition to our pesky reporter posse. Please return his calls, government officials. He’s with us. 

LoCO diehards are surely already familiar with the Fredster’s byline. Despite only being a senior at Humboldt State University, he’s already produced a number of fine stories for our well-respected online-only news source — see his articles on the state of the Humboldt County Library, a local doctor’s battle to keep her medical license and/or the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office habit of hiding comments on its Facebook page for a sampling of his greatest hits. Also, look for his interview with new HSU President Tom Jackson which drops on LoCO tomorrow morning. Freddy is everywhere!

Anyway, If you’d like to send Brewster news tips/praise/duel challenges, you may do so by emailing him at He also tweets, if you’re one of those weirdos. And if you’d like to IRL-see how well his brain performs under pressure (after a few beers) be sure to head to HumBrews this coming Tuesday at 6 p.m. for HumRights’ latest Bar Debate — Freddy will be taking the position that speech should be free or something. 

Welcome, Freddy!
