The Los Alamos Monitor has a new publisher.
Ben Carlson, 50, joined the newspaper Monday, replacing outgoing publisher Keven Todd, who resigned late last year.
Carlson was promoted from his position as publisher of The Anderson News, a newspaper located in Lawrenceburg, Ky.
“I feel truly honored to be selected for this position,” Carlson said. “I’m looking forward to making the Los Alamos Monitor the best source of local news and information it can be, and am excited to get to know the people of Los Alamos, White Rock and beyond.”
Carlson published The Anderson News for eight years after serving as editor of a publication on the North Carolina coast. He also served as senior editor for CBS Sports.com and AOL Sports in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., as well as editor at other locations in upstate New York.
A native of western New York, Carlson is a veteran of the United States Air Force.
He and his wife, Cyndie, have five children and one grandchild.
“My family and I are very excited to move into this incredibly scenic and historic community,” Carlson said, adding that his family will join him in June.
Carlson’s civic activities include serving in various functions for Kiwanis and Rotary clubs, as an executive board member for a local chapter of the American Red Cross, and as a chamber of commerce board member.
Carlson’s hobbies include hunting and fishing.
