Editor named for Cumberland Valley Business Journal
Zachary Hoopes has been hired by The Carlisle Sentinel this week as business editor and will guide the content development for the Cumberland Valley Business Journal, a monthly business magazine focused on Cumberland County that debuts later this month.
