Editor buys her own paper

FORMER editor of the Wanganui Chronicle Kirsty Macnicol has bought a newspaper of her own – The Fiordland Flyer – in the Southland of New Zealand.

The newspaper has changed its name to the Fiordland Advocate and has been distributed to local homes every Friday since January 9.

Previously, the newspaper was an advertising pamphlet.

Kirsty heads up the journalism side of the business while husband David Pickett will sell the ads. The office will be based in Te Anau.

Editor of the PANPA award-winning Wanganui Chronicle since 2006, Kirsty has previously worked on the Southland Times for 15 years.
