The Craig Daily Press has a new assistant editor.
Joshua Roberts joined the Daily Press staff Wednesday. As assistant editor, Roberts will be responsible for special sections and other editorial duties, including writing stories, taking photos and informing the community about upcoming events.
Roberts moved to Craig from Kansas City, Kan., and succeeds Christina M. Currie as assistant editor.
"Josh is a great addition to our newsroom," Daily Press editor Michelle Perry said. "He brings years of experience and a new perspective to our newspaper. He will fit in well in the newsroom and in Craig."
Roberts, 28, attended the University of Kansas and has been a reporter for five years.
He was formerly an award-winning reporter and page designer for several weekly newspapers in northeast Kansas owned by The World Co. WorldWest LLC, a subsidiary of The World Company, owns the Craig Daily Press, Steamboat Pilot & Today and Hayden Valley Press.
"I'm very pleased to be here," Roberts said. "It's a great opportunity, and people here have been very kind.
"I've always liked to tell stories about people because they're the best stories to tell. It's a misnomer that you have to be a name to appear in the newspaper. I've always worked off the premise that everyone has a story to tell, everyone is interesting on some level. Writing about the people of Moffat County will always be my top priority."
Roberts said he looks forward to meeting community members while becoming active in local organizations.
"We're excited about Josh joining our team," Perry said. "He will be instrumental in continuing the Daily Press' success."
