Mike Masterson, former executive editor of the Northwest Arkansas Times, will begin in April writing an opinion column three times a week for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
As a freelancer, Masterson had already been writing a weekly column that appeared in the newspaper’s “Perspective” section. Beginning in April, he will stop writing for that section, and his new column will appear on the “Voices” page in the “Northwest Arkansas” news section.
After five years as executive editor of the Times, Masterson resigned from that job last year and moved to Harrison to work as communications director for American Freightways, a subsidiary of Federal Express. He plans to leave that post and work full time at the Democrat-Gazette’s Springdale office.
