Look­ing for the right peo­ple for news roles

Central and North Burnett Times - - VOICE OF THE BURNETT - Shan­non New­ley Edi­tor

YOU may have no­ticed some dif­fer­ent faces around town or some dif­fer­ent voices on the end of the phone re­cently.

With the de­par­ture of our Monto and Gayn­dah re­porters Emily Smith and ShirleyWay, jour­nal­ists from the South Bur­nett Times have had all sorts of won­der­ful ad­ven­tures cov­er­ing the North Bur­nett.

Un­for­tu­nately they haven’t been able to be at ev­ery­thing, and we know there are some great com­mu­nity events that have been missed be­cause of this.

This is cer­tainly not some­thing we don’t care about, and ev­ery town­ship in the North Bur­nett re­gion is im­por­tant to us.

We are well on the way to get­ting some great new re­porters in both of­fices, but we are not con­tent just to fill those spots.

We are look­ing for jour­nal­ists who are go­ing to em­brace the roles and the com­mu­ni­ties.

In the mean­time, thank you so much to those who have sent in pho­tos and sto­ries, and if you have an event and can do the same, we would love to re­ceive any­thing you can send.

If you are strug­gling to get in touch with a jour­nal­ist dur­ing this pe­riod, please phone me on 4612 9727.

If you have con­tent you would like to see in the pa­per, email it to shan­non.new­ley @south­bur­nett­times .com.au and we will do our best to make sure it gets into the pa­per.

We will let you know as soon as we have some new jour­nal­ists on board, and I know you will be sure to in­tro­duce your­self and make them feel wel­come.
