Roundup welcomes Pederson
The Wyoming Livestock Roundup staff welcomes Candice Pederson, of Gering, Neb., to the team this week as the production coordinator. In this position, Pederson will be responsible for the design and layout of the paper, as well as serving in a key position creating advertisements.
While growing up, Pederson was interested in journalism and reporting, and even served as a reporter for the student newspaper at Scottsbluff High School. Pederson attended Western Nebraska Community College, where she studied print journalism and later furthered her education with a bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism from Midland Lutheran College in Fremont, Neb.
Previously, Pederson worked as a reporter and photographer at the Scottsbluff Star-Herald before she became the copy editor and page designer, as well as serving as the arts and entertainment editor and assistant weekend editor for the Daily Nonpareil, a newspaper based in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Eventually, Pederson moved into a lead copy editor and page designer position for a creative services company before joining the Roundup team.
In her free time, Pederson enjoys spending time with her husband, Doug, and their dog, Charlie and cat, Casey.
She says, “I am excited to work at the Wyoming Livestock Roundup and look forward to getting to know my fellow colleagues. I feel this will be a great venture for me.”
“We’re thrilled to have Candice join the Roundup team with her experience in the newspaper business,” says Wyoming Livestock Roundup Publisher Dennis Sun.
