THE staff at The Express have farewelled journalist Rhys Thomas and welcomed digital producer Maddy Gavin to the team. Starting out as a cadet journalist in 2019, Rhys began into his role only four months after completing high school.

“My time at The Express has really solidified the fact that I wanted to be in the communication space and share the stories of people and help them promote their events and showcase all the positive things in the region,” he said.

“I find extreme pride in people trusting me to share their stories and all the interesting things they do. I am now spreading my wings and moving on but I am taking many memories and many pens with me so I will never forget my time at The Express.”

Throughout his time as a journalist, Rhys has covered all local news as well as some of the biggest events the region has seen like Savannah in the Round.

With several years of experience as a content creator under her belt, Maddy is excited to step in the newspaper scene.

In her role, Maddy will be driving the digital content space, producing marketing strategies to increase engagement and reach through interactive content for The Express and sister paper, Cairns Local News.

 “I couldn’t be prouder to be a part of this family, growing up between Cairns and the Tablelands, this is my sweet spot – local business, local relationships, local news,” she said.

“I’m looking forward to leveraging my skills in digital marketing and content creation to engage and grow the online community surrounding the brand.”
