Reid sells Cushing Citizen to Meisner

David Reid has sold the Cushing Citizen to the paper's editor, J.D. Meisner.
Meisner has been in the newspaper business since 1991 and in Oklahoma since 2006. He previously worked at the Tulsa Business Journal, Lincoln County News and Bristow News.
This sale writes the end of Reid’s story of nearly 40 years spent publishing newspapers in Oklahoma.
“In ways, [wife] Myra and I feel a bit of a bittersweet emotion leaving the newspaper business. At the same time, we’re real excited that J.D. joined our company about a year ago as managing editor and we anticipate, with optimism, that he will make positive changes and breathe a breath of new life into the newspaper office and the community. It’s a good change,” Reid said.
