Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION

Greg Lockert

Night City Editor

  • Print

Greg Lockert has been employed as a copy editor, and now night city editor, at the Winnipeg Free Press since 2000.  "Night city editor" may be his title, but he has performed almost every task in the newsroom at one point or another.

You could say he's a utility player, able to perform just about any newsroom task required of him — including city desking, website editing, page layout, headline writing and yes, even writing the occasional news story, book review or column. (Greg is not short of opinions.)

These days, Greg's main role is on the night city desk but he also performs regular website duties and is, of course, the longtime editor of the Faith page.

Greg began his newspaper career in the mid-1990s after studying journalism in Calgary and spent a few years honing his craft at a series of small dailies before landing his dream gig at the Free Press.

A married father of a son, Greg grew up just outside Edmonton but he considers Winnipeg his true home; he met his wife and bought his first house here.

In fact, Greg is so loyal to the great city of Winnipeg that he cheers for the Blue Bombers and Jets and would love to meet Dieter Brock, Dale Hawerchuk or Thomas Steen.
