NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Here in Nashville, all those Christmas deliveries will be orchestrated by a brand new postmaster.

Stephen Cole was sworn in as Nashville’s 30th postmaster.

It’s a job that covers mail deliveries for more than 500 square miles, and he hopes to actually extend the reach of the U.S. Post Service in town.

Cole said one of his missions it “to serve the communities more than we have in the past, getting out… and we’ve worked with the Nashville Rescue Mission already, we’re working with the Second Harvest Food Bank next week, but having a presence of the postal community out in the Nashville community.”

In addition to that, he will oversee nearly 228,000 deliveries a day in Nashville and manage 638 employees.
