New face at PNR reporter’s desk

Devon MacKenzie, a Peninsula resident, signs on as Peninsula News Review's reporter

The Peninsula News Review is pleased to welcome a new reporter.

A Peninsula resident for most of her life, Devon MacKenzie has a great understanding of the local area. After spending the last year in Vancouver, she is happy to be rejoining the community on the Peninsula and the team at Peninsula News Review where she previously freelanced.

“I’m really looking forward to being a part of the Peninsula News Review team full time,” she said. “Our three local municipalities offer so much to their residents and I am excited to make new connections within the community.”

MacKenzie replaces Christine van Reeuwyk who, after seven years with the News Review, is now the reporter for Oak Bay News.

“The care and passion of people on the Saanich Peninsula make it a truly amazing, tight-knit community,” van Reeuwyk said. “I’ll miss that dedication and care of such a beautiful place filled with compassionate, interesting and outgoing people. I hope to find similar characters on the Oak Bay beat.”
