Brandi Schier

CEO, Discourse Community Publishing

Throughout her career as a community news publisher in Interior B.C., Brandi has learned people want to see independent, in-depth, solutions-focused local news. She is dedicated to living and learning new journalism models and bringing a connections-based outlook to community news.

As the CEO of Discourse Community Publishing, Brandi leads a growing network of independent news outlets, including The Discourse Cowichan, Nanaimo and Comox; Sun Peaks Independent News; The Revelstoke Mountaineer; and The Wren Kamloops, while supporting and collaborating with IndigiNews. She’s working with her team to reimagine journalism to better serve communities and also takes this work into her role as a sessional journalism instructor at Thompson Rivers University.
