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.
