Mark Weber

I've been a part of the Black Press Media family for about a dozen years now, with stints at the Red Deer Express, the Stettler Independent, and now the Lacombe Express. Each has offered me extensive experience in covering various facets of these lively communities. I absolutely love community journalism - having those opportunities to dive into the stories that really reflect the lives of those who care so deeply about their towns. Having called central Alberta home for most of my life, it's also a region that - in general - I also personally care about and I hope this shines through my work.
