In April of 2001 Daniel Coolbaugh started his career with Western News&Info in the computer to plate department at the Prescott Valley Print Facility. There he learned technical skills and developed work experience that allowed him to be promoted to an IT associate.
After taking on various duties within the IT department and learning the workflow of our production departments he was promoted to Prescott Newspaper’s graphics supervisor in 2005. His next move within the company was a return to the IT Department as WNI's email administrator. This promotion was coupled with a move for Daniel and his family back to his hometown in Yuma, AZ. In 2014, Daniel was promoted to WNI’s IT Director. While his career was growing with WNI, so was his family. Daniel is married to wife Samantha and has 2 sons.
