New reporter in Rossland

Chelsea Novak is the new reporter for Rossland News.

A new reporter has joined the Rossland News team, so keep an eye out for her around town. Chelsea Novak joined the paper at the beginning of the month, and has also been reporting for the Castlegar News.

Chelsea has just completed her master’s degree in journalism at UBC in Vancouver, and has a background in magazine publishing. She’s excited to be living in such a close-knit and involved community.

“Everyone here seems very involved with what’s going on around town, and everyone has been very welcoming,” she says.

Chelsea looks forward to the beginning of the ski season, but hopes to spend a little more time out hiking before the snow hits. She also needs to buy a good pair of winter boots before that happens.

If you have any stories you’d like to share with Chelsea, you can reach her at reporter@rosslandnews.com. You can also find her in the local cafes, sipping on a chai latte and happy to chat.
