Award-Winning Journalist Jamie Lovegrove Joins NP Strategy

September 13, 2021

Jamie Lovegrove, an award-winning journalist deeply versed in Palmetto State politics and media, will join the rapidly growing team at NP Strategy, a strategic communications firm serving clients across the Carolinas and beyond.  After serving South Carolina’s largest newspaper, Jamie will make his debut at NP Strategy as a project manager and assist in leading the firm’s media team.

“We are honored that Jamie is bringing his talent and acumen to the team,” said Heather Matthews, NP Strategy CEO. “Jamie is a trusted storyteller who has both the media relationships and an understanding of the changing journalism industry that will deeply benefit our clients.”

Jamie joins NP Strategy from The Post and Courier, a Pulitzer Prize-winning newspaper where he helped lead coverage of the South Carolina Statehouse, congressional delegation and political campaigns. In that role, Jamie developed a wide network of influential sources across the state in both politics and the media. In addition to daily print and online reporting, Jamie regularly appeared on podcasts and TV news shows, offering an insider perspective on Palmetto State politics.

“I have long admired NP Strategy’s work and often turned to them as a valuable resource during my time as a reporter,” said Jamie Lovegrove. “I’m now excited to have the opportunity to utilize that experience in the journalism industry to help the firm’s clients grow in South Carolina and beyond.”

Born in London, England, Jamie relocated in his teenage years to the Washington, D.C. area, where he first discovered his passion for politics and writing. Before moving to South Carolina, Jamie covered the Texas congressional delegation from the Washington bureau of the Dallas Morning News, one of the country’s largest daily newspapers. He graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in journalism and political science.

Jamie is the seventh hire for NP Strategy since the beginning of 2021. The rapidly growing team includes former journalists, PR agency executives, and communications professionals serving clients ranging from nonprofits to global corporations.
