Clay Bailey, a lifelong Memphian, has worked as a reporter in the city four decades. He concentrated on suburban coverage for the bulk of his career, except for a stint as sports editor of The Daily Memphian when it launched in September 2018. He now is suburban editor and also serves as a freelance sports writer for The Associated Press.

‘Every so often, we have to deal with the question of what night to celebrate Halloween so it doesn’t conflict with religious celebrations. This is such a year.’
