Danielle Kutchel - Journalism in a changing world

Danielle is a journalist at Star News Group, based in Pakenham. She is currently the lead writer on Berwick Star News and Cranbourne Star News. Danielle enjoys sharing the stories, successes, passions and problems of local people and chasing that old journalism adage of shining a light in dark places.

Danielle has been a journalist for around a decade now and specialises in writing about education, disabilities and social justice issues. She graduated from the University of Melbourne with a Master of Journalism in 2016 and is currently working on an Honours thesis into reporting on people with disabilities. While journalism as a profession is currently undergoing a number of changes, she believes that journalists still have an important role to play in the community - especially local communities - and is passionate about keeping people informed of what's going on near them.
