Karen Johnston bleeds ink after more than 30 years in the newspaper business. Originally from Alberta, she has served on the Red Deer Express, St. Albert Gazette, the Cranbrook Townsman, Kimberley Bulletin, The Free Press in Fernie and East Kootenay Extra. She's been on top of every aspect of the industry, from advertising, through editorial, through digital, to the press room, even delivering the newspaper to your door. Karen believes in the newspaper mission, and the values of journalism that make the community a better place.
I have been with the Kimberley Bulletin since 2001 and have enjoyed every moment of it. A lot has changed since I began in the business back in the cut and paste days, but a lot has stayed the same. Our job is to keep our community informed.
I have worked for the Kimberley Bulletin since August of 2002, I started in circulation and moved into sales three years later. I was born and raised in Kimberley and moved to Calgary for a brief five years before relocating with my husband and two sons back 'home.' I love to camp, walk the trails and enjoy the outdoors. I also spend a lot of time volunteering for minor hockey, minor ball and the Kimberley Dynamiters. You could say I have a passion for sports!
