Calgary Journal

Hello Calgary Journal subscribers!

It’s been a hot minute since you’ve heard from us, hasn’t it? Our editors and reporters are busy working on getting fresh stories to you as we settle into the semester, so you have a lot of wonderful new content to look forward to.

For now, let’s cover the bases of what you might have missed during our newsletter’s brief hiatus:

This just scratches the surface, so be sure to check out for all stories and event coverage.

What’s New?

First and foremost, me! My name is Kae Burnett and I’m the newsletter editor for the next couple of months. I’m in my final year of the Journalism & Digital Media program at MRU and hope I can bring you the boldest and best Calgary has to offer.

In the upcoming newsletters you can look forward to a Senior Reporter Spotlight (find our first one below), and a Calgary News Round-Up featuring current stories from various news organizations.

Alright, I’ll leave you to it!

Until next time,

—Kae Burnett, newsletter editor
