The Cobar Weekly staff farewell a long term employee

The Cobar Weekly staff are farewelling long term employee Tahnee Tomek this week which has caused staff members Sharon Harland and Karen Lennon to reach for the tissues.

The Cobar Weekly has this week sadly farewelled long time staff member Tahnee Tomek after almost 14 years of service.

Tahnee came to The Weekly from the Narromine News as a young cadet journalist in April 2006.

She worked her way up to Sub editor, and has at times capably filled the role of acting editor.

A few years ago Tahnee decided to move over to the “other side of the business” and became our Advertising Manager, which gave her the opportunity to use her creative ability.

She also wears a few other hats—she’s our  IT Manager, co-ordinates our social media and is responsible for the printing side of the business.

During her time with The Weekly, Tahnee has been responsible for a number of innovations, including designing our website, setting up our Facebook Page, creating online subscriptions, upgrading our computers and is she has been the creative talent behind a number of our gorgeous features, competitions and themed window displays.

Tahnee said it wasn’t an easy decision to resign from The Weekly but she felt it was time for a change.

“It has been a pleasure to be part of such a wonderful community organisation that makes a real difference in Cobar,” Tahnee said.

Managing editor Sharon Harland said Tahnee will be missed.

“Over the years Tahnee has made a considerable contribution to The Weekly and much of the paper’s ongoing success can be attributed to her efforts and dedication to the role.

“Tahnee has always gone above and beyond and we’re really going to miss her but wish her all the best for the future,” Mrs Harland said.
