Denman Islander newest member of Record newsroom

You might have noticed a new byline in Wednesday's Comox Valley Record.

You might have noticed a new byline in Wednesday’s Comox Valley Record.Actually, it’s not a totally new byline for us because Renée Andor worked for us last summer. The difference this time is that we’ve hired her full-time to replace departed reporter Lindsay Chung, now the editor of our paper in Ladysmith.”Renée worked hard and impressed us last summer, so it was an easy decision to hire her,” said Record editor Mark Allan.Renée grew up on Denman Island and attended G.P. Vanier Secondary school, graduating in 2002.After work in offices and a bit of travel, she enrolled in the two-year applied  communication program at Camosun College in Victoria. She graduated in April 2011 and worked as a temporary reporter at the Black Press’ Campbell River Mirror since the summer as crime and general assignment reporter.Now, she’s back in the Valley covering the Courtenay, health and education beats.Erin Haluschak adds the military to her list of beats that includes Comox and police-courts. Scott Stanfield covers Cumberland, regional district and business. Earle couper handles our sports section. Allan co-ordinates arts coverage.
