New editor in chief named in Lawton, Okla.
An award-winning journalist with 18 years of newspaper experience recently began his duties as editor in chief of The Lawton (Okla.) Constitution.
Jacob Brower was publisher of two small community newspapers in Missouri – The Monett Times and Cassville Democrat – prior to being named to this new position at The Constitution. He led the Democrat to the Missouri Press Association's Gold Cup award as the state's best small-town weekly newspaper three times from 2015-17.
Before going to Missouri, Brower was editor of The Daily Citizen in Searcy, Ark. The Citizen was named best in state by the Arkansas Press Association and the Arkansas Associated Press for three consecutive years.
