New "News-Sun" General Manager
Posted in the Hobbs Forum
#1 Sep 23, 2009
Being new here, I'm not sure if the following topic has ever been discussed:
Was it ever stated in the Hobbs "News-Sun" article that the person replacing General Manager Kathy Bearden is her own son Kenneth Norris? I read the article only glancingly, but I seem to have noticed the article did not state the relationship between the outgoing and the incoming General Manager. I may have overlooked it, however. Can someone please tell me whether the mother-son relationship was ever stated or was the article written in such a way as to conceal that fact?

Not sure where you moved from, but you will find this is the norm in SE NM. Take for example Sen.Leavell appointed his son in law to the County Board of Supervisors.

I found this story after I made the last post. Pretty clear to me that the relationship was disclosed.

Kenneth Norris, who has worked at the Hobbs (N.M.) News-Sun since his high schools days, has been named general manager of the paper. He succeeds his mother, Kathi Bearden, who retired Sept. 1 as publisher. Bearden took a job as executive secretary of the News-Sun more than 22 years ago and has been publisher since 1995.

Thanks. I totally missed it. Glad to know there was nothing hidden about it.
