Chalpat is the editor of the Seymour Telegraph and is responsible for everything from writing stories and taking photographs of news and sport to the paper’s production.
Chalpat came to Seymour after working on Fairfax and News Ltd newspapers in three Australian states and both islands of New Zealand.
His previous job was as chief reporter for Fairfax’s standalone WA internet news service WAtoday.com.au, the third purely online newspaper in the world when it launched in 2008.
Chalpat joined the Telegraph in April 2011 and loves the region and its people.
His interests are his family and horse racing – it is pure chance he ended up in the premier thoroughbred breeding region in Victoria - and he enjoys any opportunity he gets to write about the industry, especially the equine gold that is the area between Seymour and Nagambie.
Chalpat says The Telegraph has been the voice of Seymour, Nagambie, Avenel, Puckapunyal and Tallarook (as well as anywhere in between) for more than 120 years and it is his responsibility to ensure that continues.
