Steven Smeall

Hello everyone, I'm very excited to have this opportunity with the Seaway News.

I'm currently a second-year journalism student at Algonquin College and will be interning here for the next five weeks. I have been writing for publications in Ottawa during my education and have many skills that I look forward to applying here as part of the Seaway News team.

I grew up in Apple Hill, Ontario, that very lively community located about 30 minutes north of Cornwall, so I'm quite knowledgable of the Seaway community.

I have been quite the sports fanatic for years now and look forward to bringing more sports coverage during my stay here.

I'm also looking forward to bringing more of an online and social media presence as well.

I'm looking forward to getting started here and know it will be a great five weeks!

Organizations: Algonquin College, Seaway News

Geographic location: Ottawa, Apple Hill, Ontario Cornwall

    Welcome to the wonderful world of journalism, Steven! I, too, studied journalism and then practiced it in the "real" world. That was back in remotest antiquity, as I've been retired from the workplace for nearly two decades. As you know, many big-shot newspapers are eschewing paper and going with electrons; so you're entering the profession at a crucial time. Just how that trend away from actual newspapers will impact smaller publications remains to be seen, but whatever happens is bound to be interesting. Best wishes and good luck to you, from a colleague in the Lower 48.
