Brian Zinchuk, Pipeline News

Brian Zinchuk has been editor of Pipeline News since 2008 when the publication first fired up in its current form. When not working as a journalist, he spent several years pipelining and is 1,000 hours short of completing a journeyman program as a pipeline equipment operator - excavator. Thus, unlike many other journalists you might run into, he's actually worked in the field in this sector, building pipelines from Moosomin to Fort St. John, B.C.
In addition to his newpaper work, Zinchuk also works as a professional photographer.
He is based in Estevan, Sask.
