LaRue previously worked at The Paper of Montgomery County, owned by Sagamore News Media, parent company of The Times.
“That’s how I met Tim Timmons, our publisher, and also a big part of how I likely got this job,” LaRue said. “News has always been my No. 1 interest. I love being able to speak knowledgeably and at length about current events, so I’ve been a newshound since I was in high school (writing for his school magazine) and that’s always dominated my time and attention.”
LaRue said his duties at The Times include assembling and publishing each day the paper each day, and working alongside its publisher to “diversify content and grow The Times’ presence in Hamilton County.”
While at Wabash, LaRue double majored in English and Rhetoric. He was a member of Phi Delta Theta fraternity, Student Senate and the lacrosse team.
