“I’m definitely excited to have this opportunity,” Allison said. “I’ll continue the long-standing traditions established here at the Tryon Daily Bulletin. This is and always will be the community’s newspaper.” 

Allison was born and raised in Green Creek and is a 2001 graduate of Polk County High School. He became the production manager at the Bulletin in 2013. 

“I bring experience, focus and a love of the community to the table,” Allison said. “We have a great team here at the newspaper, and we all appreciate the history of it. Even though we are focused on the future and our digital products, I’m still very old school. I still operate the printing press, and all the various mailroom equipment. At this point, after nearly 20 years, I have ink in my blood!”

Allison lives in Polk County with his wife Melissa and their 8-year-old son, Blake. He encourages the community to reach out to him at jeff.allison@tryondailybulletin.com with any thoughts, suggestions, questions or content that they would like to share for publication.

Former general manager Kevin Powell has taken a lead role in the sales department.
