Montara resident and Half Moon Bay Review design director Bill Murray has been named publisher of that newspaper, replacing Debra Hershon, who is retiring.
Murray has worked at the Review since 2005 and a story about his promotion noted that he has deep roots in the community and is a well respected newspaper man with a
host of design awards.
In 1997, he was hired as a designer and illustrator for the Palo Alto Weekly and was quickly promoted to design director for the Weekly’s sister newspapers, the Mountain View Voice and Menlo Park Almanac.
“Working for a weekly newspaper is very satisfying,” Murray said. “There is an intense amount of work, but the payoff is being able to see evidence of your labor around town and in the hands of readers.”
