Reporter to take over the reins
My name is Emily Clooney and I’m the new Stanthorpe Border Post reporter.
It feels somewhat bittersweet to write this introduction as we bid farewell to our physical papers and welcome the new age of digital news.
From Monday, I will be here to tell the stories that matter to you; from community heroes to local crime, and the talented athletes in the sporting arena.
For nine months, the Southern Downs has been my home and I’ve loved every opportunity I’ve had to speak with locals about what matters to them.
While sport is my passion and has been my niche for the past nine months, I look forward to covering all aspects of local news.
Digital news will be a challenge for all of us to come to terms with at first, but know you aren’t alone.
If you see me around town, please feel free to stop me and have a chat – I’m usually one who likes to talk.
I look forward to the future of news in the region, and the endless opportunities to tell the stories that matter.
Journalist Emily Clooney.
