Barbara King is the publisher of the Plain Dealer & Sun newspapers. She grew up here in North Vernon, the daughter of the late Burlin and Viola King who purchased the weekly newspapers in 1954. The third generation in her family to work in the newspaper field, Barbara believes the Internet is the latest frontier for community journalism and one that offers weekly newspapers in particular the opportunity to expand services and readership. Besides her business responsibilities, Barbara continues to contribute regularly to the newspapers. She has covered the North Vernon City Council since the early 1980's.
     Being an active member of our community is a real asset when it comes to understanding the stories we are covering on a daily basis," says King, who encourages staff to get involved, too.
     Barbara is married to local attorney John Roche. The couple has two children, Liam, who works in Indianapolis, and Nathan, a freshman at college.
