Angie Campbell named Jacksonville Daily Record publisher
The Jacksonville Daily Record begins the new year with a new publisher, former business manager Angie Campbell.
The fifth publisher in the 110-year history of the newspaper, Campbell, 45, succeeds founder John McManus, James F. Bailey Sr., James F. Bailey Jr. and Matt Walsh, CEO of Observer Media Group.
“When we acquired the Daily Record in 2017 from the founding Bailey family, I had several goals and intentions — to keep this historic institution going and growing and become personally involved in Jacksonville’s business and civic life,” Walsh said.
“I think we’re still on track with the first two, but for family health reasons and the pandemic the past two years, I haven’t been able to fulfill the latter. We’ve now solved that with the promotion of our longtime business manager.”
