What’s New: The Daily Record is gearing up to celebrate its 125th anniversary on Oct. 4. The paper was first commissioned in 1888 by the Warfield family. On Feb. 6, the Daily Record hosted a party for advertisers, sponsors and friends in support of the impending milestone.

The Record also launched a timeline of the paper’s history on the publication’s website, and staffers committed themselves to 125 hours of community service in nonprofits in four key arenas: homelessness, children and family services, environment and animals. Last Friday, 13 volunteers representing the Daily Record served at Hampden Family Center. Painting, helping with children and learning about the mission at Hampden Family Center used almost 50 hours of the allocated community service hours.

“I believe we will double our commitment of 125 hours,” said publisher Suzanne Fischer-Huettner.

Other news at the Daily Record includes the hiring of a new editor. After six years at the Record and a long history at the Baltimore Sun, former editor Tom Linthicum retired. On Jan. 7, Dave Simon started a as the new editor. Simon migrated from The Gazette.

“Dave brings a great deal of experience and energy to our newsroom,” Fischer-Huettner said. “Dave’s charge is continue to produce award-winning, respected business and legal reporting in print while breaking interesting news online throughout the day.”
