About Michael Lacey

The son of a construction worker, Michael Lacey came of age in Newark, N.J., before moving west in the late 1960s to attend Arizona State University. Lacey had already dropped out in 1970, when he and a pair of students published the inaugural issue of Phoenix New Times as a response to the ultra-conservative local media’s coverage of campus antiwar protests.

With Lacey at the helm of New Times as executive editor and his business partner, Jim Larkin, heading up the advertising side, the feisty, free weekly grew its circulation while exploring a variety of social and political issues and gaining prominence among the nation’s growing roster of alternative newspapers
