About Greg Moore

Greg Moore, Arizona Republic opinion journalist, is a Black thought leader who gets radically honest about topics other people won’t touch.

He’s been writing about race, culture, sports and politics for 15 years, including a three-year, award-winning stretch for the Republic.

Moore was recently appointed to the organization’s editorial board, making him one of a small number of African Americans in the nation to hold such a position.

He’s been deemed one of the best writers in the nation by the oldest, largest and most influential organization in American sports journalism. He was an essential member of an Emmy-winning documentary team. And he set the record straight on the first person killed in the Korean War.

He’s also an accomplished trash talker, a semi-reformed class clown who reigned undefeated on the back of the bus and in cafeterias all over the Detroit area.
