MARITZBURG Fever has a new editor and she aims to bring her years of editorial experience to serve the communities in Pietermaritzburg. Candyce Krishna comes from the South Coast and has been in the media industry for 11 years.

“Ever since I was in high school I knew I

wanted to be a journalist. I studied journalism at Varsity College and have had not looked back,” she said.

Her passion has always been in community newspapers as she started her career in a community newspaper on the South Coast in 2006. She joined the South Coast Fever in 2011 and has been a part of the Media24 local news team since.

Krishna has enjoyed her trips to Pietermaritzburg for a number of train

ing sessions in the past and is now looking forward to calling the city “home”.

“Firstly, I will have to get used to the weather. I’ve been told to get out my electric blanket for the winter months. I think Pietermaritzburg is a lovely place and I can’t wait to explore it and get to know the people better.”

The Fever name is very special to Krishna and will bring an open mind and a willingness to learn to PMB Fever.

“Readers can look forward to the good stuff they have been seeing in the Fever. “I want to offer more profiles and features - a community paper is about people - what they’ve achieved, who they are and where they are heading. We can all learn from and inspire each other.

“I cannot wait to meet the tons of inspiring people of Pietermaritzburg.”
