Hello Ladysmith! I will be the new editor/reporter here at the Chronicle and I am excited to cover your stories. I hope to meet as many readers as I can while I am out in the community photographing and interviewing.
My love of storytelling began with photography in the Alberta foothills and shifted to writing and reporting during my time studying digital journalism at Lethbridge College.
After a year covering news in Parksville and Qualicum Beach, I am excited to bring my experience and skills to Ladysmith. I believe a community newspaper should be filled with quality local content that reflects its unique readers. Expect to see me around town covering all the town’s exciting, scary and important stories and if you have a story to share please do not hesitate to contact me.
My other passions aside from news include sailing, music and reading. I can often be found working on my boat or sitting around with a good book.
The most exciting stories to me are features about unique and interesting people. I have a particular interest in stories about the arts. Being new here, I need your help to find the interesting stories I should be telling.
If you see me out reporting feel free to say hello. Send your news tips and letters to email@example.com and follow me on Twitter for live local coverage @_hay_tyler.
