Tracey Williams-Dillard: Publisher of Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder

Tracey Williams-Dillard is the granddaughter of Cecil E. Newman, who founded the Minneapolis Spokesman and St. Paul Recorder in 1933, both of which merged in 2000 as the Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder. The paper is still family-owned, with Williams-Dillard—who has worked at the paper since the age of 8—as publisher, and her uncle Raymond Boyd as associate editor.

This interview was conducted in the Spokesman-Recorder's offices at 4th Avenue in South Minneapolis on Jan. 25, 2011.
