A.D. Hopkins

After starting his journalism career in Virginia and North Carolina, Hopkins came to Nevada in 1969 expecting to stay a short while and move on. More than 40 years later, he was still in the front row of history in the making as a reporter and editor for the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Former reporter for the Las Vegas Sun and editor of the Valley Times, he went to work for the Review-Journal and for years was the editor of its Sunday magazine, the Nevadan. He took over the R-J’s special projects team in 1989 and exposed scandals ranging from UNLV’s basketball team to the Nevada Supreme Court. He also co-edited a popular history book, “The First 100,” chronicling the rise of Las Vegas.
