“I’m excited to lead the paper and work with everyone,” Carlson said. “I want to continue our success and improve how we tell stories online, in print and through multimedia.”
Carlson has been with the paper since the spring of 2014. She has worked as a page designer, reporter, news editor and managing editor during that time.
