Telling stories is in my blood.
I’ve been a journalist for more than 15 years.
I started as a cadet at the Northern Star, worked at News Corp in Sydney as education editor and then back to Lismore to work at APN until it was bought out by News Corp.
I was editor of the Richmond River Express Examiner for five years and when News Corp shut it down I became editor of the Richmond River Independent for more than a year until economic circumstances meant the community owned paper had to close.
I knew the vacuum of real local news needed to be filled. I decided to provide that online and indyNR was born.
I am committed to local stories, about real people and the issues that matter to country folk.
If you want to contact me about a story or an issue you think should be covered email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our stories create a narrative history of our region. It is what drives me to focus on news from Kyogle and Richmond Valley.
Proudly at your service.
IndyNR editor Susanna Freymark
