Alice Rouse, Publisher at the Murray Ledger and Times, is retiring soon—a rare event at the newspaper. Her replacement, Mike Davis will only be the third publisher at the Ledger and Times in the last 40 years. Davis is leaving the Hopewell News from Hopewell, Virginia.
Rouse will serve as Publisher Emeritus while Davis transitions into the new role for several months. Rouse began with the Ledger and Times in 1975 and became publisher in 2001.
