Your local community newspaper has two new team members, so keep your eye out for them around town in Rossland. Christine Esovoloff and Alicia Wallace joined Rossland News last week in an effort to grow the newspaper and continue to bring the community quality weekly print and online publication solutions.

Christine has worked for Black Press Group Ltd, the Rossland News parent company, for over 15 months as Sales Associate for the Castlegar News and is excited to expand her sales role with the Rossland News. Christine’s background is as a newspaper columnist, sales associate, and mom. Christine brings a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm to the job having grown up in the Kootenays. “I love people! And I love helping people market their businesses in unique and exciting ways,” said Christine.

With a background in marketing and communications, Australian native Alicia Wallace, joins the media group as part-time reporter for Rossland News. Alicia’s local government experience has afforded her the opportunity to work with a diverse range of community members. Alicia arrived in Rossland after hearing how good the skiing can be and how welcoming the local community members are. “What I enjoy most about Rossland is the friendly locals and wealth of experiences offered from mountain biking, hiking and events to skiing,” she said.

“It is excellent to have both vacancies filled so quickly with individuals who are passionate about the media industry and telling the local communities’ stories,” said Rossland News Operation Manager, Jennifer Cowan.

Rossland News is the only provider of free printed newspapers to the Rossland community and is delivered every Thursday. The media group also offers daily online updates via the website and social media sites. These combined communications, crossing print and web platforms deliver tangible results in our community.
