"She is definitely ready for this next step in her career," said Quillon, who is also publisher of the Johnstown and Cumberland papers. "The good people of Fairmont are getting a publisher who understands the need for local focus and quality content."
"I am fortunate to gain a great staff,?" said Fox. "I am committed to working with them to produce the best possible print and online products."
