NEW EDITOR: Familiar face appointed to DEX head role
THE Daily Examiner has appointed a new editor although many readers will already be very familiar with his face and work.
Adam Hourigan has been photographer at The DEX for the past two decades, winning countless accolades for his photographic work including a Walkley Award, and several company guernseys as Photographer of the Year. More recently he was a finalist in the $50,000 Moran Photographic Prize.
Beside providing stunning images for our pages, he has also been honing his writing skills for the past few years, an all-rounder who will now lead the newspaper he began his cadetship with in 1996 through its next chapter.
Adam said he was looking forward to the challenges of running a multi-platform regional media organisation which prides itself on both its print and online presences.
"Over the past two decades, I've come to see most corners of the Clarence Valley and have been privileged to tell the stories of people I meet," Adam said.
"I'm keen to continue that and showcase the people and the events of the wonderful area we live in."
And while you may not see him armed with a camera as often, you will see him out and about in the community as the 158-year-old daily masthead continues to champion and service the Clarence Valley.
Join us in congratulating Adam on his new role.
