Prince Rupert is back on the TV7 News beat with arrival of new reporter

After close to six weeks of reduced coverage, Prince Rupert and the North Coast is making its way back into the daily news stream for Terrace based CFTK TV7, with the Northwest broadcaster having now filled the vacancy created when Corey Callaghan departed for Global Winnipeg.

Helena Skrinjar is the newest reporter for TV 7 and comes to the North Coast by way of Toronto, the Bulkley Valley and Gilead ...

Hailing from Canada's largest city, Ms. Skrinjar made the move Prince Rupert having most recently worked in the newsroom at the Moose/BulkleyLakes Now.

The reference to Gilead comes from her work in acting, with TV7 making note of some of the non-news pursuits of their newest reporter, who has appeared in the Hulu/Bravo/Crave series the Hand Maids Tale, where she was counted among the handmaids that wander the streets in the fictional republic.

With some acting experience on her resume, she can probably expect a few inquiries for some future projects from the local theatre community as she settles into Prince Rupert.

Ms. Skrinjar's time in the Bulkley Valley provided her with the first glimpse of some of the main themes for news in the region, with her jump to Television News bringing her to the North Coast as a number of major port related developments beginning to percolate.

With the vacant position now filled, North Coast residents may once again find more coverage of the work of Prince Rupert City Council and North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice, something which has been somewhat limited in recent months around the region.

Her debut on the North Coast offered up two very different experiences in just this first week, with a report earlier this week on the peaceful, tranquil nature of the newly reopened Rushbrook Trail.

That early introduction to Prince Rupert was followed up by providing for some video footage of the surreal scene on Fifth Avenue West this week, when an RCMP Emergency Response Team addressed a ten hour stand off in the city.

You can learn more about her previous work from this short introduction from TV 7.
