Congratulations to Washington and Lee alumnus Lindsey Millar, of the Class of 2002, who has been elevated to editor of the Arkansas Times, a weekly alternative newspaper in Little Rock.
A native of Searcy, Ark., and a history major at W&L, Lindsey has written for the Times since 2007 after holding previous positions at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, the Oxford American, the Little Rock Monthly and the Localist. He had most recently served as lifestyle editor for the Times and has written on a wide variety of subjects. He’s also hosted the newspaper’s Week in Review podcast.
The Arkansas Times bills itself as “Arkansas’ Newspaper of Politics and Culture.” In the newspaper’s announcement of his appointment, Lindsey was quoted as saying that he expects the newspaper to continue to grow because it is committed to covering important stories that are often ignored elsewhere.
