Digital-only publication takes off in Manitoba

Glen Kirby, a career journalist, launched the Southwest Post last fall, a digital-only news site carrying daily news stories he writes and photos taken as he covers the region around Souris, Hartney and Wawanesa, Manitoba.

“We are focusing on the stories that are important to people in that very specific southwest area and we are delivering it on daily and immediate basis through a very contemporary platform,” he told the Manitoba Co-Operator last week.

It’s an ambitious project because the area is also served by a variety of community newspapers and radio stations plus the Brandon Sun.
