Week 3 at the Edmonton Journal

December 30, 2008

renshaw-horsesMore horses! The story published on Tuesday was clearly the highlight of my 3 week internship – my first ever scoop!

Frank Mackay, the Edmontonian owner of the two McBride horses talked anonymously to CTV on December 24. However, I tracked him down and was able to get the complete back story and permission to publish his name. Mackay’s story made the front page of the December 30 Journal and was picked up in the Victoria Times-Colonist (A6).

Here are the postings (so far) from my third and final week at the journal:

Saturday, Jan 3: LRT freezes in its tracks, stranding thousands, A1.

Friday, Jan 2: Second historic flight re-creation postponed by frost weather, online.

Friday, Jan 2: Family’s lives knitted together at hospital maternity ward, A2.

Wednesday, Dec 31: Bissell Centre’s New Year’s Dinner to serve up 2,000 plates, online.

Tuesday, Dec 30: Owner: I tried twice to save horses, A1.
