Robert HensonRobert Henson


Born in Sydney, Rob began his journalism career as a student at Charles Sturt University’s Bathurst Campus, where he was politics writer for a student magazine. While at university he completed work at assorted country and metropolitan community newspapers, Associated Press and the now defunct  FHM Australia.

He relocated to Swan Hill in 2010, for a cadet reporter role at The Guardian. Not to be confused with it’s UK-based counterpart, The Guardian was independently owned  as part of the Elliot Newspaper Group.

As a journalist and occasional editor of the tri-weekly newspaper, Rob covered all areas of country life including court, health, police, sport, features and council. He never won any AFL tipping comps and came last in the Swan Hill Agricultural Show’s baking competition.

Rob joined the Cobram Courier team in February 2014. He said leading a community newspaper, such as the Cobram Courier, came with great responsibility – and it was a privilege to be able to tell the local stories that affect local readers.

Toni BrientToni Brient

Cadet journalist

Toni joins the Cobram Courier as a cadet journalist. From council matters to farming news, she is passionate about local issues and how they impact local people.

But she also hopes to delve into national and state issues, as they play out on the streets of Cobram Barooga and district.

Toni is proud to be part of the Cobram Courier as it continues to be a voice for local people across the Murray Valley and Southern Riverina.

She moves to Cobram from the Mornington Peninsula.

After developing a keen interest in news and current affairs at a young age, Toni completed a Bachelor of Journalism degree at Monash University in 2013.

As part of her course, she undertook internships at The Age newspaper, Business Spectator and Shepparton News.

Her interest in reporting on community issues began as a student journalist, when she reported for the Mornington Peninsula Leader newspaper, Mornington Peninsula News Group newspapers and Radio Port Phillip.
