By The Paper staff

Josh Sigler joined the staff of The Paper of Wabash County on Jan. 2 as a general assignment reporter.

Sigler will replace Emma Rausch, who left to pursue a master’s degree at Indiana University Bloomington.

Sigler is a native of Tipton, and is a 2006 graduate of Manchester University.

He worked at the Wabash Plain Dealer from 2006 to 2010, starting first as a sports reporter before being promoted to sports editor in 2008.

From there, Sigler spent six years at the Kokomo Tribune, where he served in the sports department for five years before moving on to the news department in 2015.

He was the recipient of the Hoosier State Press Association’s top award for a feature story he wrote on concussions.

In early 2016, Sigler opted to try his hand at a career change and accepted a position with the City of Peru as its public information officer.

Realizing he missed journalism, Sigler opted to return to the Plain Dealer for a short stint in late 2017 before joining The Paper’s position.

Sigler and his wife, Laura, were married in 2009. She is the assistant principal at Wabash Middle School.

The couple has two children, a 5-year-old-daughter Madilyn, and an infant son Conner.
