Jacobson resigns as CDP publisher, accepts ad director job in Greeley
Bryce Jacobson announced today his resignation as the publisher and editor of the Craig Daily Press.
He is leaving to accept a position as the advertising director of the Greeley Tribune, a Swift Communications newspaper.
Jacobson, 35, has served as the publisher of the Daily Press since January 2006, and as editor for the last several months. His last day is Feb. 6.
“Under Bryce’s direction we have served our readers and advertisers well,” said Suzanne Schlicht, chief operating officer of WorldWest Limited Liability Company, which owns the Craig Daily Press. “He has been instrumental in developing a team of talented and committed employees who will carry on the excellence that has been Bryce’s trademark. Craig Daily Press has won more news and advertising awards under Bryce’s direction than ever in its past, and this is one of Bryce’s many accomplishments that will be remembered and respected in the future.”
Jacobson, originally from Sterling, previously worked in circulation with news organizations in Colorado and Nebraska.
Jacobson said the opportunity to focus on the advertising side of the business as well as Greeley’s close proximity to his childhood home played significant roles in his decision.
“I enjoy the entire business, but I’m excited to focus on one department and my kids are at an age where it’s going to be good for them too,” Jacobson said. “This town has been great to my kids and me, and I’m going to miss it like crazy. But I’m also excited for the opportunities that lie ahead for us because my family is in Greeley.
“It’s going to be hard to drive out of this town. I have some good, good friends here.”
