Pat Reiter has been appointed as the publisher of The Stettler Independent, Castor Advance, and Regional Weekender.
Reiter is not new to the world of community papers, having worked at various weekly news publications over the years, one of her longest stints being at the Westlock-Barrhead-Athabasca chain.
“The good thing about community newspapers in small towns like Westlock and Athabasca then was the focus on what’s happening in the community, and that has not changed. And I’m sure that’s true for publications like Stettler Independent and Castor Advance as well,” Reiter said. “I think residents want to know what’s happening in town, and which sports teams are playing the home teams in the weekends.”
