Questions and answers with Brent Constantin
Following the departure of longtime SAITSA publications manager Suzanne Trudel at the end of October, there have been a lot of changes here at the Weal.
One of them is the addition of Brent Constantin to our editorial team, serving as our new publications editor.
Constantin is a graduate of the Broadcast Journalism program at NAIT and went on to get his degree in communications from the University of Calgary.
During his time at the U of C Constantin served as news editor at the Gauntlet, the U of C’s student newspaper.
But now Constantin is here, so why not pull up a chair and find out more about our editor as he answers questions from us, his staff.
