How I’ll approach my new role as publisher of The Dallas Morning News
It is a fascinating time to be the publisher of The Dallas Morning News, and one could argue the role of the free press has never been so widely debated. On my first day as publisher, I spoke to our employees about perspective, and it may be helpful for you to understand my perspective as well.
First, a few words about me. I grew up in Albuquerque, N.M., in a family with a long history of public service and community involvement. I received my undergraduate degree at the University of Kansas, and my wife and kids would tell you I have a strong passion (verging on addiction) for Kansas basketball. My wife, Katie, and I ultimately found our way to North Texas, and I received my MBA from Texas Christian University. We fell in love with Texas and have been here ever since.
