Position: Editor-In-Chief, "old media"
HQ: Cleveland, OH
Pettigrew was a surly Pennsylvania record store employee a la High Fidelity for many years before discovering AP at a show in Cleveland back when fax machines were de rigeur. He has worked full-time for AP nearly two decades, and has amassed a whole bunch of memories that would mean absolutely nothing to most people, yourself included—but they're his, so leave him alone. He remains cooler than your parents, aunts and uncles, because unlike them, he can wax rhapsodic about everything from My Chemical Romance to the Dillinger Escape Plan to Rene Hell to Pulled Apart By Horses. He has no tattoos or piercings and prides himself on not having substance abuse issues, social diseases or restraining orders taken against him—all things anybody in this line of work have been saddled with at least one moment in time.
