“‘The Business Weekly has been aggressive in cementing its place as Albuquerque’s authority on business news,’ said NMBW Publisher Ian Anderson. ‘Joe and Rachel have been key in helping us build a news platform that harnesses the strengths of our print edition, our website and our social media outlets in a way that has created great opportunities for growth.

Sams, as managing editor, will be tasked with overseeing the day-to-day operations of the newsroom, ensuring the timely production of high-quality, accurate news content.
