Re­porter to take over the reins

Stanthorpe Border Post - - NEWS -

HI THERE,

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.
