From submarines to wolverines and, of course, the pandemic, reporter Keili Bartlett covered a wide variety of beats from the station in Nelson.

As she says goodbye to head to a sunnier climate, Bartlett joined Kootenay Morning for one last show to say goodbye and share some of her favourite stories.

Bartlett was part of the Local Journalism Initiative, from Heritage Canada, which puts journalists in under-reported Canadian communities. She’ll be headed to work at the Coast Reporter newspaper in Sechelt, B.C.
