A change in newsroom leadership at the Arkansas Times has led to the promotion of the first female editor-in-chief in the publication’s nearly 50-year history.
Former Arkansas Times editorial director Austin Bailey will take on the role of editor-in-chief — replacing Lindsey Millar — and is the first woman to hold the position, the Arkansas Times reported Tuesday.
Bailey, 47, started as managing editor at the Arkansas Times in 2021.
The North Carolina-native previously worked as a reporter for the Pocono Record and the Rocky Mountain Telegram in North Carolina, as well as at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette from 2000 to 2005; Bailey later worked as editor of World Ark, Heifer International’s magazine, before joining the Times.
