The Craig Daily Press is proud to introduce its fall intern, Barry (Bear) Steadman, to the community.
Steadman graduated from Moffat County High School last spring and is now taking a variety of classes — including journalism — at Colorado Northwestern Community College.
“Bear is a great fit for the Craig Daily Press,” said Managing Editor Noelle Leavitt Riley. “He’s smart and enthusiastic, which is the kind of person I like to have in the newsroom.”
Steadman was born in Glenwood Springs, but spent most of his life in Craig. He’s passionate about music and writing, and he has a natural curiosity that helps his journalistic drive.
“I’ve always loved writing, whether creative or factual. Music is my number one passion, but I’m pursuing journalism because I feel like I could make a more practical career out of it,” Steadman said. “I enjoy interviewing people and writing stories about what is going on in the world. I’m also constantly trying to write my own music and enjoy playing chess with my dad, who is also named Barry.”
The newsroom staff is also excited to have an intern.
“Bear seems to be a cool guy who has a knack for journalism,” said Government Reporter Erin Fenner. “We look forward to having the additional help with writing stories about our diverse community.”
