The Shelbyville Times-Gazette is proud to announce a new chapter in its storied history with the introduction of Daniel Richardson as its visionary leader, ushering in a new era of commitment, passion, and excellence in community journalism.
From a tender age, Daniel has been steeped in the world of newspaper publishing, inheriting a legacy and a love for storytelling from his late father, Dennis Richardson, the founder of Magic Valley Publishing. This early immersion in the field has fostered a deep-seated passion and understanding of the power and responsibility that comes with community journalism.
Following his service in the Marine Corps reserves, which included a deployment to Iraq, Daniel returned to his roots with a fortified sense of duty to serve and uplift communities through the power of the press. His journey through various roles in the newspaper industry has equipped him with a wealth of experience and insight, from editing the Hickman County Gazette in Kentucky to leading the Carroll County News Leader in Huntington, Tennessee as its publisher.
As the Chief Operations Officer for Magic Valley Publishing, Daniel played a pivotal role in expanding the company’s reach and impact, overseeing the operations of 17 titles and ensuring that each publication held steadfast to the principles of integrity, transparency, and community service.
With a place on the board of directors for both the Tennessee Press Association and the National Newspaper Association, Daniel is a staunch advocate for the vital role of local journalism in our society. His dedication to community service extends beyond the newsroom, as evidenced by his active membership in the Rotary Club of Camden, where he resides with his wife, Lena, and their four children.
Now, at the helm of the Shelbyville Times-Gazette, Daniel is eager to forge meaningful connections with the Shelbyville community, to share in your stories, and to solidify the newspaper’s role as a trusted beacon of reliable information.
The Shelbyville Times-Gazette stands poised to navigate the exciting journey ahead, with Daniel Richardson leading the way, ensuring that the newspaper not only lives up to its storied legacy but also evolves to meet the needs and expectations of today’s readers.
Join us in welcoming Daniel and in celebrating a new chapter of excellence and dedication at the Shelbyville Times-Gazette. Together, we are writing a story of resilience, innovation, and unwavering commitment to the community we are proud to serve.
