Tim Gallagher, the retired Pulitzer Prize-winning editor and publisher of The Albuquerque Tribune and the Ventura County Star, wrote a column in 2014 about what he would do differently if he returned to the news industry.
“I’d be far more transparent about how we do things,” he wrote, highlighting our industry’s news-gathering process.
For nearly 55 years, the Sedona Red Rock News has been a small-town community newspaper, so we cover issues that directly affect our residents. Arts events, musical performances, nonprofit fundraisers and activities, school events, contests open to the public, awards and achievements earned by residents, and stories that affect children, the elderly or the less fortunate make for great news items. The more people the story affects, the more likely it’s a good story for us to cover.
