The veteran newspaper executive has been publisher for the past 30 years for diverse newspaper operations across six states.

His early career included work in advertising sales and management, as well as work as a reporter and editor.

“I’ve been very impressed with the people I’ve met and the prospects for the future of Carson City and Douglas County,” Raymond said.

“There are many reasons for optimism for the community and for the Nevada Appeal and The Record-Courier. I admire the can-do spirit I’ve found here.”

He assumed interim publisher responsibilities for the Nevada Appeal and The Record-Courier in September.

Raymond, a Michigan native, earned his bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University and his master’s in administration from Central Michigan University.

He and his wife, Paulette, have four adult children and are in the process of relocating from Oregon to Carson City.
