Eric Walker named news editor in Mayfield, Ky.
A familiar face will soon lead the news operations for The Mayfield (Ky.) Messenger and mayfield-messenger.com. Eric Walker has been named news editor and will oversee the newsroom functions beginning July 1.
Current Editor Tom Berry will retire from the newspaper on June 30. A reception to honor Berry is planned for Wednesday, June 26, at The Mayfield Messenger office.
"Eric will make a great news editor for The Mayfield Messenger," said Berry. "He's very experienced in news, as well as sports, and will do an excellent job. Personally, I don't think the newspaper could have picked anyone better for the position. It's just another reason local residents should seriously consider looking to The Mayfield Messenger as their No. 1 source for local news and sports."
