In­tro­duc­ing Caitlin Moorby


You may no­tice a change in the way your com­mu­nity news is writ­ten – a new re­porter has taken on the North Waikato patch.

My name is Caitlin Moorby and I can’t wait to dis­cover what the com­mu­ni­ties of North Waikato have to of­fer.

I grew up on a dairy farm in Te Awa­mutu, which is where I have lived my whole life, other than the three years I spent in Auck­land study­ing jour­nal­ism.

I come from a fam­ily of five and have an older and a younger brother. My fam­ily and my friends are the most im­por­tant things in my life.

Com­ing from a ru­ral, small town back­ground I ap­pre­ci­ate the lit­tle sto­ries and un­der­stand what it’s like to be a part of a com­mu­nity.

But, I also find great sat­is­fac­tion in de­liv­er­ing hard-news sto­ries, so I’ll be keep­ing an ear to the ground.

In my spare time I like to cook, go to the movies or get cof­fee. My favourite time of the year is Sum­mer and my favourite place to be is at home on the farm. I can milk cows and I’m part Ma¯ori.

I have worked for the Waikato Times for al­most two years and will con­tinue to do so, as I em­bark on the North Waikato.

I look for­ward to meet­ing the faces of the North Waikato!
