North Shore Outlook, WestEnder get new editors

February 27, 2011

I’m slow off the mark on this, but whatever: big personnel changes earlier this month at three Lower Mainland newspapers.

Michael White, editor of Black Press’s alternative weekly the WestEnder has left to edit a magazine (I’m not sure what magazine.) Justin Beddall, who was editor of the North Shore Outlook, is taking over the WestEnder, with Martha Perkins, editor of the Bowen Island Undercurrent, taking over Beddall’s former post.

Martha will also continue to edit the Undercurrent because, as we all know, community newspapers don’t replace journalists, they only give them more shit to do.

Here’s Martha’s very positive column on the changes.

I am going to continue to cover the Monday night council meetings. Oddly enough, it’s something I enjoy doing. I’ll also be covering other news events on the island, just not as frequently.

As well, I’ll be on the island a lot as a cottager of sorts. My husband and I have a sailboat at the Union Steamship Marina, and absolutely love this new aspect of our life here.

And here’s a story in the Outlook.

Congrats and good luck to all.
