ABOUT YCM

Your Community Media Pty Ltd (ACN 642 727 768) is the publisher of Peregian Springs News, Coolum News and Eastern Beaches News.

As a company Your Community Media’s aim is to see local news survive and thrive for local readers and advertisers alike.

We know locals love to support other locals where they can, to read great stories about their neighbours and to know what’s going on in their own backyard.

We combine the best of all media, including print publications, to deliver this information in a trusted, friendly and easy-to-access format every month.

ABOUT GEOFF

As the Director of Your Community Media Geoff brings to the table more than two decades of experience in local print media as a journalist, editor and general manager.

His career kicked off in Brisbane as a cadet with Quest Newspapers in 1997 and then moved north in 2006 when he was lucky enough to be appointed the manager of The Noosa Journal.

He loves to learn and has degrees in Arts/Journalism and Strategic Leadership and Management, loves the beach, surfs badly and has been known to try and run out on a hockey field occasionally with other old blokes who should know better.

He started Your Community Media because he is convinced local people still want to read local stories about their patch of the world and they are happy to read it in print rather than on a screen.

ABOUT REBECCA

Rebecca brings considerable skills to the table as the Editor of Peregian Springs News, the publication upon which the Your Community News business has been built.

With degrees in Journalism and Law Rebecca spent more than a decade working as a solicitor before taking a bit of time out to focus on her two daughters.

In 2015 she launched Peregian Springs News to help the community have a say on a few key issues affecting the growing residential estate in which she lives. What started as an 8-page newsletter has evolved into a much-loved 44 page a month news and lifestyle magazine for the area.

For Rebecca, local media represents a chance to help communities to build their sense of identity, to celebrate their successes and look after each other.
