ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) - A member of the family that has owned the Roswell Daily Record for decades has stepped in as the new publisher.

The Roswell Daily Record announced the appointment of Barbara Beck on Wednesday. She replaces Charles Fischer, who left in early August after eight years at the helm.

Beck is a daughter of Robert Beck, president of Roswell Publishing Co., and sister to Cory Beck, who was the paper’s publisher for nearly 20 years until his death in 2006.

Barbara Beck is an educator and worked as a journalist for The Associated Press for several years in the Middle East during the late 1980s and early 1990s.

She says her family has been an integral part of the Daily Record for over six decades so she’s taking on her new role with a great sense of responsibility.
