Pona, Steve

Associate Editor Production / Operations

It was Steve’s tragically misguided dressing down of Hunter S. Thompson in the letters pages of Playboy magazine that launched him along his path in journalism.

It was Watergate and the methodical hunting down of the American president that elevated a dalliance with the written word to a full-out romance, sending him packing to Ryerson University in Toronto to earn his journalism credentials.

Steve has covered most of the major beats for the Winnipeg Free Press, his hometown newspaper which he delivered as a kid in the heart of the North End.

He’s been a copy editor, news editor, business editor and longtime city editor.

As associate editor, production and operations, Steve is responsible for blazing new ways of delivering content to newspaper and digital platforms.

He also has a longtime interest in helping bring new journalism talent into the newspaper and the industry.
