Chris Campbell

I joined the Victoria News hub as an editor in 2023, bringing with me over 30 years of experience from community newspapers in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley. I graduated from Langara Journalism School and my career has taken me to various places, from Vancouver – where I worked for a commuter daily – to Burnaby, Coquitlam, Maple Ridge, Abbotsford, and Chilliwack.

My affection for community newspapers developed early due to their hyper-local focus and strong connections to the communities they serve. In my eyes, there's no such thing as a story that's too small to be told. As a father to a grown-up daughter, this perspective resonates deeply with me.

Having recently moved to Vancouver Island, I'm excited about this new chapter and the opportunity to explore and uncover all that this beautiful place has to offer.chris.campbell@blackpress.ca
