About Us

Our Editorial Staff
Robert L. Lyons Jr./Editor

I am from Winslow, Arkansas. I live in Bull Shoals, Arkansas. I am a proud United States Army Veteran that served in Desert Shield/Storm. I have been with the Echo since 2015 and the Editor Since 2021, working for Marion County and will continue to work for Marion County and surrounding schools and communities. The community I serve is a large supporter of the schools and the kids as well as the veteran population. I enjoy covering sports for the newspaper and radio stations, as well as building projects from wood and attending as many community activities as possible. As the Editor I am “The Paper Boy” and I work for Marion County!

Peggy A. Mason/Owner/Manager

I am originally from London, AR. I currently live in Ozark, AR with my family. I was previously a Girl Scout Leader for 13 years, HeadStart teacher, Vendor for Hallmark, and most recently resigned as an office manager of a staffing office. I have been with the Mountain Echo for 3 years. My big focus is to cover the wonderful community of Marion County and surrounding areas. I enjoy bringing information focusing on local news, our children, our Veterans, the elderly, as well as the general public. I want to be there for our readers and help with as much as I possibly can. I will commute to Marion County. I look forward to getting to know all of the ins and outs of what is going on and what I can do to improve the area. In the future I do plan to have a home in Marion County so I will be there when needed.
