Erik Pindera

Multimedia producer - City

Erik Pindera is a Swiss Army knife.

His main role is as a web editor — laying out and repackaging the fine work of Winnipeg Free Press reporters and photographers online, handling the paper’s newsletters, finessing social media and correcting pesky typos, among other tasks.

He also reports and writes, with a particular interest in justice and public policy.

The lifelong Winnipegger managed to snag a few internships at the paper during his journalism studies at Red River College. Before he rejoined the Free Press fold in 2020, he was a television and radio reporter and before that, a small-town newspaperman.

In broadcast and small towns, he learned how to do nine jobs at once — from content management to audio/visual, he's had his hands in just about every facet of digital news at one time or another.
