Fall is a season of change, and with the arrival of the special double Fall/Winter issue of Prairies North comes a big change for the magazine: longtime editors Lionel and Michelle Hughes are handing over the reins to Rob and Amanda Soulodre.
In the Editorisms section of the magazine, Lionel writes a heartfelt goodbye and welcomes the new editors, saying Rob and Amanda “bring enormous enthusiasm and skill to continuing the story that has been the heart of this magazine for almost 20 years.”
As the founders of Prairies North (originally called Saskatchewan Naturally), Lionel says he and Michelle had a chance to share uniquely Saskatchewan stories, giving the world a better understanding of why we’re all so proud to be from this place. “The memories we have collected in getting to know the people we’ve written about and those we’ve written for are indelible,” he writes.
Rob and Amanda make their Editorisms debut, noting that as the publishers of Saskatoon HOME Magazine, they understand the importance of great content. “Our core belief has always been that ‘content is king’ and we promise to continue filling the pages of Prairies North with interesting articles and eye-popping photography.”
The new owners close their letter by thanking Lionel and Michelle for all the work they’ve done over the past 20 years to make Prairies North a success. “We take the continuation of this legacy very seriously, and look forward to the next 20 years of sharing our love for Saskatchewan with you.”
