Frank Peebles

I started my career with Black Press Media fresh out of BCIT in 1994, as part of the startup of the Prince George Free Press, then editor of the Lakes District News. As of 2023, I’m the editor of the Quesnel Observer, plus content as needed in other BP papers. In between times, I did some television with Shaw, some radio with CFIS-FM, a wide range of communications consulting, event hosting, freelance writing/editing, and 15 years with the Prince George Citizen. In the process, I’ve won three Ma Murray Awards (six-time finalist), two Canadian Community Newspaper Awards, and had fun!
