Don Descoteau
Don is a 26-year veteran of the community newspaper industry, all spent with Black Press. This native of Victoria began his career at the tender age of 29 as sports editor of the Williams Lake Tribune, the first publication owned by company owner David Black. Three years writing about everything from hockey to rodeo to ranching led to an enjoyable six-year stint as sports editor with the Campbell River Mirror on the North Island. When a position as senior news reporter came up at the Victoria News in 2001, he jumped on it and made the move back home, covering city council, police and various other community happenings. Don eventually moved up to become interim, then permanent editor of the Vic News before a reshuffling of personnel saw him serve as editor of the Oak Bay News for three years. More changes brought him back to Victoria, and in 2014 he was named editor of the Goldstream News Gazette on the fast-growing West Shore. He returned for a third stint with the Victoria News in May 2017 and took over as Monday Magazine editor in March 2018. The father of two amazing children and an active participant on the local music scene, Don enjoys writing and photography. Call him anytime or email editor@mondaymag.com with your story ideas.
