Editorial Team

Meet your Times Journalism Team!

The Editors

Andrea Sternberg – Senior Editor
Andrea is a first-year journalism student. Andrea is a massage therapist who is exploring what else she is capable of. She believes that it is never too late to change your trajectory. Andrea’s ideal pathway would be either editing or communications for an organization whose mission she believes in. This year, Andrea plans on continuing to reach a wider and more diverse audience, as well as engage The Algonquin Times readers to suggest story ideas – stories that need to be shared and that encourage people to think creatively and to take action.

Brett Thoms – Managing Editor
Bret is in his first year of Journalism here at Algonquin College. As Brett enters the journalism industry, he would like to work in the domain of independent media and investigative journalism, with a special focus on politics, labour, and the economy. This year, he hopes The Times will reflect relevant news for students that are in isolation. Brett is also actively covering the Algonquin Board of Governors and has been charged with creating awareness of the Board and its function for students at the college. He has noticed that the industry has room for innovation, and so he hopes to contribute to the rethinking of how news can be delivered.

Tamara Condie – Assistant Managing Editor

Tamara is a first-year journalism student. Tamara would ideally like to work as a radio, talk show or podcast host, as well as carry out some freelance writing within the journalism industry. This year, the main goal she has in mind for her editorial team is to convert The Algonquin Times into a paper that can bring students together, to help eradicate feelings of isolation during these times. She also independently hosts her own podcast and has been gaining industry experience writing for iPolitics, working for the Navy League of Canada in communications, and more. She intends to shed a bright light on the industry by contributing accurate and easy to consume news.
