Reporter

Carolin Vesely’s first newspaper gig was at a rural Alberta weekly where the reporters shared a typewriter and developed and printed their own photos. In the darkroom, the sink drained into a bucket that had to be emptied into the toilet across the hall.

After a few more stints covering bull sales, grasshopper infestations and two-headed calves at other Prairie weeklies, Carolin landed a reporter position at her hometown paper, the Lethbridge Herald.

Carolin spent a year backpacking in Australia before continuing along the Thomson newspapers trail, with stints at the Medicine Hat News and Thunder Bay Chronicle-Journal.

She landed at the Free Press in 2000 following a queasy encounter with some bad pickerel in Kenora.

Carolin has worked as a general assignment reporter, editorial writer, copy editor, lifestyle writer, features editor and columnist. She gave up photography after her equipment was stolen during a trip to the Czech Republic and currently explores the lighter side of life as a feature writer in the Free Press’s lifestyles/entertainment department.

Carolin holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Montana, where she earned a William Randolph Hearst Foundation in-depth writing award for an honours project on gambling in Montana’s remote Indian reservations.
