New reporters hit the streets chasing stories for The Northern View

The Northern View has two new
reporters on staff in Prince Rupert
As we head towards summer, there will be some new faces looking to break some stories on the North Coast, as two new reporters join the roster of staff at the Northern View.

Editor Shannon Lough, herself a relative newcomer to the region and recently promoted to her new position introduced the newest hires yesterday.

The short overview from the paper providing a glimpse of what's ahead for the journalistic adventures for Joseph Jack and Matthew Allen.

Mr. Jack is to take on the general news reporting duties, while Mr. Matthews is destined to the sports beat in the community for now.

He takes over the review of the city's sports scene from Bevan Hamilton, who after one year on the North Coast has returned to Ontario for the next adventure on his journalism path.

For those that might be missing some of his work, he is a contributor to an online project called the Jays Journal, which you can review here.

You can also track his career through his twitter feed.

In addition to working some of their new sources for news stories, the two newcomers to the city also got to work the streets, delivering papers last week as chronicled through the paper's instagram feed.

They not only report the news at the Northern View, 
sometimes they bring it to your doorstep

The arrival of the two new reporters for the weekly paper is just the latest in changes on the local media scene.

As we noted in May, CFTK TV finally filled their long vacant reporter position in Prince Rupert, with Corey Callaghan now working the news files out of the Atlin Terminal studios of Bell Media.
