Journalist William Smith is set to join The Impartial Reporter later this month, moving from his current role at the Tyrone Constitution in Omagh.

With a background that includes stints at the Strabane Chronicle and freelance reporting for the Ulster Herald, Mr. Smith has extensive experience in news reporting, court and council coverage, human interest stories, and rural affairs. Notable contributions include in-depth reporting on the Omagh Bomb anniversary and investigations into matters within the Fermanagh and Omagh District Council.

Expressing his excitement about the move, William remarked: "I am delighted to be joining the editorial team at Fermanagh's most established newspaper, The Impartial Reporter. Having worked as a local journalist at various local titles for over six years, I have gained valuable experience covering a wide range of topics from breaking news and community issues, to agricultural matters and local sport.

"This role will be a new challenge, and I am greatly looking forward to getting to know the people of Fermanagh, telling their stories, and reporting on the issues that mean the most to them."

The Impartial Reporter's Editor, Rodney Edwards, expressed his enthusiasm about William's appointment, stating: "William's impressive journalistic background and keen interest in our publication and the local area left a lasting impression on us.

“The Tyrone Constitution, a reputable newspaper that has nurtured outstanding talents like Deric Henderson, John Irvine, and our former colleague Julie Kenwell, is known for producing some of Northern Ireland's top-notch local, national, and international journalists. We are thrilled to welcome William to our team and eagerly anticipate his contributions in the upcoming year."
