Michael Webster has been named editor of the Mount Vernon Democrat.

A Mount Vernon native, he started at the Democrat as a 9-year-old paperboy. Most recently, he started working at the newspaper again in December.

In a recent newspaper column, Webster recounted that his first experience with the Democrat was when he was 4 years old. A reporter snapped a photo of him reading a book in the children’s section of the public library. His grandmother kept a clipping of the photo in her Bible.

Webster studied journalism at Indiana University and has spent most of his career in publishing.
