The League of Women Voters’ monthly community event, Lunch with a Leader will feature Los Alamos Monitor publisher, Ben Carlson. The talk will start at 11:45 a.m. Aug. 19 at the Mesa Public Library.
Carlson joined the Los Alamos Monitor in February 2014 as the newspaper’s publisher. The Landmark Community Newspaper asked him to relocate from Central Kentucky following the resignation of Keven Todd.
Carlson is a native of Western New York and a U.S. Air Force veteran. He met his wife, Cyndie while in the service. They have five children and two grandchildren.
His previous work experience includes being editor of The Brunswick Beacon in Shallotte, North Carolina, senior editor of CBS Sports.com in Fort Lauderdale, editor of the Livingston County News in Geneseo, New York, sports editor of the Rochester Free Press in Rochester New York, and sports editor of The Evening Tribune in Hornell, New York.
Along with numerous awards for news and opinion writing, Carlson was the 2013 Kentucky Sheriff’s Association Citizen of the Year and has served in a variety of civic capacities, including Chamber of Commerce board member and leadership roles in Rotary, Kiwanis and the American Red Cross.
Carlson will talk about what it’s like to run the Los Alamos Monitor and his various responsibilities. Carlson also will talk about why the Los Alamos Monitor is the No. 1 news source in Los Alamos County.
