Michael MaskellMichael Maskell


Michael joined the Kyabram Free Press as a cadet in 1995, and following a three-year stint with The Shepparton News, was promoted to editor of the Free Press in February 2009.
He has reported on every imaginable aspect of Kyabram, from tornados to the historic Albion Hotel burning down, from Victorian Premier Jeff Kennett’s visit to open the ‘new’ Community Centre to many new Fauna Park arrivals.
He specialises in people stories and likes to celebrate the everyday heroes who live among us and who make Kyabram a place to be proud of.
A passionate photographer, his camera is always by his side.
He relishes the responsibility of his role and is dedicated to ensuring the Free Press continues to be the voice of its community.
Shepparton-born, Michael has three beautiful boys and has made his home in Kyabram for the past 17 years. He is always on the look-out for basketball recruits for his Masters (over 35) team and loves walking golf courses.

Neil SandersNeil Sanders 


Neil has been a journalist and photographer at the Kyabram Free Press since February 2011.

Neil moved to Australia from London, where he worked in the communications industry for 17 years, in 2007.

Neil says he has always enjoyed writing, particularly about sport, and meeting people.

He says writing features for the Talk the Toll Down campaign, which aims to reduce the road toll by talking about road trauma, were challenging but he hopes they helped spread the road safety message.

Neil says sport is his real passion and living in a region like the Goulburn Valley that loves its sport makes him feel at home - even if he has had to get used to watching an oval ball more than a round one.

He also loves animals and seeing so many farm animals, pets and other wildlife every day puts a smile on his face.
