Pressroom Podcast: Sam Cook prepares for retirement

Duluth News Tribune outdoors writer Sam Cook pauses on a 20-below-zero morning on Canada's Baffin Island while covering a dogsled expedition led by Ely's Will Steger in 2007.

It's his gain, but our loss. Beloved News Tribune outdoors reporter and columnist Sam Cook is retiring after 38 years at the DNT.

Sam joins us this week to look back a bit at the highlights of his career, but also to look ahead at how he's going to spend his time now that he doesn't have to fill the Sunday outdoors section of our newspaper every week.

What we are into this week: the 8th Congressional District race, the movie "A Quiet Place," taking over Sam Cook's parking spot, "Miami" by Joan Didion and medicare. 

Tune in every week to hear Duluth News Tribune reporters Brady Slater, Christa Lawler and Tom Olsen talk about current Duluth and Northland happenings. You can email us at or follow us on Facebook. This podcast is produced by Barrett Chase.
