Josie Sellers

I started my journalism career in 2002 with a daily newspaper chain. After various stops with them, I am happy to be back home!
I graduated from Coshocton High School in 1998 and received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2002 from Walsh University. I also earned several awards while working for daily papers, including being honored by Coshocton County’s veterans for the stories I wrote about them.
I am honored and ready to once again shine a positive light on Coshocton County. I also am the proud mother of a little girl named Sophia!
