Half Moon Bay Review Publisher Debra Hershon told her staff on Monday she will retire at the end of the year after leading the weekly paper for 15 years.
A report on the Review’s website said she began her career at the Review when she was hired as an advertising representative in 1991. She became publisher in 1996.
The Review has won numerous awards and, in 2006, it was named the best small weekly newspaper in the country by the Inland Press Foundation. The newspaper is owned by Wick Communications, publisher of 31 community newspapers across the country. (Photo credit: Charles Russo of the Review)
