Diane Shelton has joined The Greeneville Sun as an advertising representative.
"The Sun is fortunate to have someone with Diane's depth of experience and knowledge join our advertising team," said Artie Wehenkel, Advertising Director at The Greeneville Sun.
"Diane has worked in large and small markets helping advertisers grow their business through the use of multi-media and will be a valuable asset to our team, and most especially to her clients," Wehenkel said.
Shelton was born in Greeneville and is a graduate of South Greene High School and Hamilton Business College.
She began her advertising career in 1990 in South Carolina at The Greenville News.
She later worked at the Knoxville New-Sentinel and at The Tennessean in Nashville and was the sales director for Titans Exclusive, a fan publication for the Tennessee Titans.
Shelton left newsprint in 2001 and went to work as a senior account executive for Clear Channel Communications, which is home to five radio stations on Music Row in Nashville.
She sold air time and endorsements for on-air personalities such as Dave Ramsey, Gerry House and Phil Valentine.
In 2007, Shelton left radio and launched Step Inside Magazine, serving the towns of Spring Hill and Thompson's Station in Williamson County.
In 2010, she moved back to East Tennessee, where she owned Rusty Nails Antiques in Dandridge.
Last year, she and her husband, Mark, moved back home to Greeneville and started a new regional magazine, East Tennessee Living.
The Sheltons have two children, Matthew, who resides in Franklin, and Ashley, a senior at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
