Dave Welsh has been named publisher of Cache Valley Publishing LLC by The Herald Journal’s parent company, Pioneer News Group.
Welsh ascended to the top position, which includes oversight of The Herald Journal, this month with the Sept. 6 departure of Mike Starn. Welsh, 36, who has worked at the paper since 1999, said on Monday he is excited for the opportunity to serve as publisher of a company that also includes The Tremonton Leader, The Montpelier News-Examiner and The Preston Citizen.
“I know it’s an amazing responsibility that comes with a lot of ups and downs — so far, there have been a lot of ups,” Welsh said. “This is an exciting opportunity for me, and, I hope, for the people that I work with, and we’ll see what the next few months bring.”
