New adventure underway for delivering news

Brook Jones – Keeping Up With Jones

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a passion for the newspaper industry, therefore, it would come as no surprise to my family and friends that I have started my own media platform. I am most proud to have recently launched the Selkirk Settler Times.

I started reading the Winnipeg Free Press when I was in Grade 5 and just two days shy of my 12th birthday I became a paperboy for the Free Press. It was a position I held for nearly six years.

It was an honour to have been able to work for Interlake Publishing for nearly 10 years. I started my career with Interlake Publishing as a multimedia journalist with The Selkirk Journal in 2010, then became the editor of The Journal in 2014 and finally group editor of Interlake Publishing in 2017. I appreciate all that I learned in my various roles during my time with Interlake Publishing (Sunmedia/Postmedia).

It is a thrill to be back covering news in the Tri-S area. It didn’t take me long to decide after Interlake Publishing closed its door in early May to embark on this new adventure. I have always said it was the people, who brought me the most joy while covering the news for Interlake Publishing, therefore, I am most excited to be able to carry on covering news, sports and entertainment, while continuing to connect with people in the local area.

My mom, dad and sister have always encouraged me to do my very best in life and I am blessed for their love and support. In order to chase your dreams in life, I believe you need the backing of your loved ones, therefore, I appreciate my family and friends.

I am appreciative to all those industry, who have given of their time to help me embark on this new adventure.
