Samyn, Paul

Editor

Paul Samyn has been part of the Free Press newsroom for more than a quarter century, working his way up after starting as a rookie reporter in 1988. And if you count the time he spent delivering the newspaper as a boy growing up in St. James, his connection to the Free Press goes back even further. As a reporter, Paul wrote for every section of the paper, covered elections, wars overseas and the funerals of a royal princess and a prime minister.

The graduate of the University of Winnipeg and Red River College helped lead the Free Press’s political coverage for a decade as its Ottawa bureau chief before being named city editor in 2007. In the summer of 2012, Paul was promoted to Editor, becoming only the 15th person to hold that office since the Free Press began publishing in 1872.

Spectacular 1-handed grab by Jeff Fuller for TD. #Stamps up 30-6 over #Bombers. This is like watching a heavyweight beat up a flyweight

Hajrullahu from 35 yards out. Now 23-6 Stamps over #Bombers. Rum Hut is humming.

Penalties piling up for the #Bombers. Game slipping away and their response has been poor.
