Brian Zinchuk has been editor of Pipeline News since 2008 when the publication first fired up in its current form. Prior to that he worked with the Battlefords News Optimist, Rosetown Eagle, Saskatoon Journal and Yorkton This Week. When not working as a journalist, he spent several years pipelining and is 1000 hours short of completing a journeyman program as a pipeline equipment operator - excavator. Thus, unlike many other journalists you might run into, he's actually worked in the field in this sector, building pipelines from Moosomin to Fort St. John, B.C.
Zinchuk has been writing a weekly opinion column since 1992, and has been named SWNA columnist of the year five times and photographer of the year twice.
In addition to his newpaper work, Zinchuk also works as a professional photographer.
He is based in Estevan, Sask.
