Judy Keller, long-time leader of The Marlow Review, to retire; paper seeks successor

November 28, 2018

Judy Keller, the dynamic and successful Publisher and General Manager of The Marlow Review announced plans this week to retire at the end of the year. Judy, who has led the paper for the past five years, would like to find a successor who cares deeply about Stephens County and its people.

“My husband Joe and I want to spend time traveling and visiting special places and special people,” Keller said. “And, of course, I want to take more photographs.”

“I couldn't do it if I continue to work full-time at the paper. So, reluctantly, I need to retire and want to find someone new who will lead the paper. We have a great team with Todd Brooks and Tabitha Zupper and I want to find the right addition who loves this community and who will continue to build our digital and print presence.”

Keller said that she and the papers' owners are looking for someone who cares a great deal about the local community and who has selling and people skills.

“We will very much miss Judy,” said Phil Calian, co-owner of Lewis County Press, LLC which owns The Marlow Review, The Blackwell (OK) Journal-Tribune and nine other Midwest paid weeklies. “Judy was the reason we purchased the paper in 2015 who led it successfully following the Hruby family tragedy.

“While we could never replace Judy, we want someone in Stephens County who shares Judy’s love for Marlow, Duncan, Bray, Central High and the other Stephen’s communities who also possess her sales and editorial energy,” Calian added.
