COOKEVILLE-PUTNAM COUNTY FEATURED IN "WHERE TO RETIRE" MAGAZINE
COOKEVILLE, Tenn. - Results from a summer journalist visit has led to high-level exposure in one of the top retiree publications in the country. Cookeville received front-page billing on the November/December 2017 edition of Where to Retire magazine. The feature was initiated due to a combination of attention gained from Putnam County’s standing in the state’s Retire Tennessee program along with a letter from a local retiree who raved about life in Cookeville. The visitors’ bureau worked with award-winning, freelance journalist Larry Bleiberg on the project, sharing information, arranging interviews with local retirees and stakeholders and provided a personal tour.
