Comfort joins News-Review Staff

Charlie Comfort - News-Review Editor

          The Sigourney News-Review is pleased to introduce Charlie Comfort, as the new
News Editor. Comfort is an Iowa native, growing up down the road in Oskaloosa and
attending William Penn University.
          “I have been a journalist for about five years,” Comfort said. “Journalism is
something that I have always enjoyed and have a passion for. I am happy to be here in the
small town community where I think it has the biggest impact.”
          With journalism being an interest in his life, Comfort has had quite a bit of
experience prior to taking the position.
          “I was news director over at KBOE in Oskaloosa for about a year, prior to that I
was just a reporter and part-time board-op,” Comfort said. “I did some work for Osky
News, hyper local website and was a columnist for the Oskaloosa Herald when I was in
college.”
          Before his break from journalism to work at Community 1st Credit Union in
Ottumwa, Comfort took a position in northern Iowa from 2015 to 2017.
