I’ve been a journalist for more than 20 years and I love reporting.

I started as a cadet at the Northern Star, worked at News Corp in Sydney as education editor and then came back to Lismore to work at APN.

I was editor of the Richmond River Express Examiner for almost five years and when News Corp closed the paper, I became editor of the Richmond River Independent for more than a year until covid economic circumstances closed the community-owned paper.

Not wanting the area to be without local news, I started this website.

We need to hear local stories about real people and the issues that matter to country folk. does that.

I am committed to balanced and fair reporting and believe news should be free and available to everyone.

If you want to contact me about a story or an issue you think should be covered email me at

Our stories create a narrative history of our region. And news from Kyogle and Richmond Valley needs to be told.

Proudly at your service.

IndyNR editor Susanna Freymark
