Erin Cardone takes the editor's seat at Review, Laura Lavin works in Victoria

The Peninsula News Review has a new editor.

Erin Cardone most recently worked for the Victoria News, where she covered crime news, labour issues and community events. She also assisted with editing duties.

Erin launched her career in community newspapers in Quesnel, B.C., becoming sports editor of the Quesnel Cariboo Observer while still an intern of the Mount Royal University (college at the time) journalism school in 2007. She completed her degree at the technical school FH Wien in Vienna, Austria.

She then signed on with the Saanich News, covering police, politics, development issues and agriculture. After spending a year in Australia, Erin came back to the Capital Region to work for the Victoria News.

Erin is looking forward to the people and the opportunities her position at the Peninsula News Review will bring.

Former editor Laura Lavin now works for the Victoria News as associate editor.
