Chuck Robinson

Copy Editor

Chuck Robinson formerly was a senior copy editor for a weekly trade publication serving the fresh produce industry. He has served trade publications, horticultural journals and community newspapers for 25 years. In addition to making all of Land Line’s editorial content look good as our copy editor, he frequently uses his quiet, sharp wit to keep things real among the newsroom antics. Chuck’s delightfully calm demeanor has also landed him on our Morning Meeting Bingo card with the entry of “Chuck Gives Up.”
