Craig Daily Press Staff Report

The Craig Daily Press added a new member to its advertising team this week with the addition of Josh Cook.

A native of Jacksonville, Fla., Cook, 38, will serve as events coordinator/advertising consultant for the newspaper, specializing in social networking development.

“I’m excited about building social media business and advertising as well as bringing the Daily Press’ online and social media advertising up to date,” Cook said.

Daily Press Advertising Manager Bonnie Stewart said the addition of Cook provides an important skillset for the newspaper’s advertising department.

“We’re excited because he has a really good, sound background in social media,” Stewart said. “That’s something that we’re lacking here. We don’t have the training for the social media part, so he’ll be able to help our customers with that.”

After spending 15 years in the restaurant industry, Cook went back to school and earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of North Florida in 2010.

A life-long Florida resident, he said he’s excited about living in a new region, especially one as friendly as Northwest Colorado.

“I love it here,” the new Hayden resident said. “I’ve met more neighbors here in one week than I did back in Jacksonville in 38 years. I’m looking forward to getting to know people, forging relationships and just getting used to the lifestyle.”

Cook can be reached at 875-1789 or
