ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

There is a new face in the Kalona News office on Aug. 30.

Bill Cooney comes to Kalona after working as news editor for the Anamosa Journal-Eureka in Anamosa for the last year. Cooney will be stepping into the role of news editor after training with current Editor Dan Ehl for a few weeks.

Cooney, a native of Des Moines, graduated from The University of Iowa in 2016, where he worked as metro editor for The Daily Iowan, the university’s student-run daily newspaper. Currently living in Iowa City, Cooney said he’s looking forward to a scenic commute into Kalona each day.

“I’m excited to start reporting on and writing about Kalona and the surrounding communities,” Cooney said. “I’m ready to start meeting people and exploring the area.”

When not writing for the paper Cooney said he enjoys reading and writing about technology and sometimes will attempt to write short stories, usually with mixed results. He also plays rugby for the Iowa City Ducks Rugby Club and enjoys playing the piano from time to time.
