New reporter welcomed

New reporter Zak Wellerman has joined the Dunn County Herald.

Zak Wellerman, recently joined the staff of the Dunn County Herald. He said he’s looking forward to experiencing everything Killdeer and North Dakota and the surrounding areas have to offer – even the snow. “Since I accepted the job with the Dunn County Herald, people have told me to make sure to have your winter clothes. But I’m not worried about the snow at all. I can handle a little snow with no trouble if I have too,” Wellerman said.

“I am delighted to welcome Zak a  stand-out applicant out of several who brings outstanding journalism background and skill set to our awarding team in Killdeer.” The Dunn County Herald Publisher Frank Perea said.

In May, Wellerman graduated from the University of Texas at Tyler with a degree in Mass Communication. While attending college, he worked as a writer, news editor, and editor-in-chief for the University newspaper, Patriot Talon. He also has experience in digital media interning with KLTV in Tyler, Texas.
