Becker said he was excited to have his platforms go to an organization like the historic Rockland County Times.

“After meeting with the new management of the Rockland County Times, I was convinced that Joe, John, and Walter will bring the paper into the next generation of news consumers in an innovative way.

The news is the news,” said Becker, “But how people will consume it is being re-imagined all the time. As a news company, you need to be nimble and open-minded, and from what I see, they are.”
