A veteran community newspaper reporter has joined the Langley Times.
The name will be a familiar one to Langley readers. Troy Landreville has been covering community news and sports in Langley since March 1995, when he started working at the Langley Advance.
The 47-year-old worked at the Advance, primarily as the newspaper’s sports reporter, community features writer, and weekend reporter and photographer for the past 21 years, before the amalgamation of Black Press’ two newspapers in Maple Ridge created an opportunity to join the Times newsroom.
Landreville has also previously covered the Langley City council and Langley School Board beats.
In addition to his time at the Advance, for the past 10 years Landreville worked at the Maple Ridge & Pitt Meadows Times as a community features writer, sports reporter, and photographer.
“I am looking forward to this new chapter in my career,” Landreville said.
“I am very excited to be part of the the Times award-winning editorial team.”
Through the years, Landreville has been the recipient of numerous provincial Ma Murray Awards as well as Canadian Community Newspaper Awards for his photography.
The Times is pleased to welcome Landreville to our editorial team.
