Mays joining WPJ staff

Webster Parish Journal is very pleased to announce a new face on our staff that will be familiar to many local business owners.

Curtis Mays joins us beginning May 9.

“Curtis’ area of expertise is media advertising, and we are so happy to have him onboard,” said WPJ publisher Bonnie Culverhouse. “As our sales manager and account executive, Curtis brings fresh ideas and a wealth of advertising knowledge to the table.”

Mays has been in advertising for almost 20 years.

“I would like to thank Bonnie and Pat Culverhouse for the opportunity to join the team at WPJ,” Mays said. “I look forward to working with everyone, some whom I have known and worked with for years in the past.”

Mays said he is also excited to continue working with new and previous business leaders in Webster Parish “with whom I have developed a great working relationship over the past 18 years. I believe the WPJ is a true asset to our community by providing up-to-the-minute news, sports and information to its readers,” he continued. “With solid leadership and a great staff, I look forward to helping the WPJ with my experience to continue to thrive and move forward.”

Mays will oversee account executives Randy Ward and Paige Nash. Nash also covers news and publishes Claiborne Parish and Bienville Parish journals.

Along with Nash, WPJ writers are Pat and Bonnie Culverhouse, Marilyn Miller and Josh Beavers.

“We have a very strong staff now,” Bonnie Culverhouse said. “May 18 Webster Parish Journal will celebrate its second anniversary, and the publication’s growth in readership and advertising is phenomenal.”
