Ep 244 | Aired 5/19/2021 This week on Up in Your Business with Kerry McCoy is a conversation with two Giants in Arkansas publishing: Mr. Walter Hussman and Mr. Alan Leveritt. Walter Hussman’s skills as an extraordinary newspaperman are legendary. He won the infamous newspaper war between the Gazette (a morning paper) and the Democrat (his afternoon paper) that lasted through the 1970’s. Then, after overseeing the two papers’ merger, he navigated his paper, now called the Democrat Gazette, through the crippling dot-com boom of the 90’s. Alan Leveritt, as an upcoming writer and entrepreneur, saw this legendary newspaper merger as an opportunity. With the loss of the Gazette, so went the loss of the liberal voice in Arkansas. So, young Alan Leveritt began publishing his alternative newspaper: the Arkansas Times. Like Walter, he successfully kept his publishing company afloat during the dot-com boom and its negative effect on newspaper publication.
