Happy 20th anniversary, Shaz!

WHILE GC&M News has enjoyed a storied 36-year history, a key part of its ongoing success has been the commitment and skills of its longtime production designer, Sharon King.

Shaz notched up 20 years with the newspaper last week, having joined the publication when it was owned by Pam and John Innes back in 2003.

She has now worked with three owners and seen a myriad changes in the media landscape, but says working for a paper that is so entrenched and loved in the community is more than she could ask for in a job. And while Shaz has 20 years under her belt, Kirra Livingstone celebrated her first year after joining as a casual sports reporter in 2022. Both are much-loved members of the GC&M News team. Well done Shaz and Kirra!
