Maureen PeggPerth/Smiths Falls/Lanark County Reporter

Maureen began working at Lake 88 just after it came on air in 2007. She had previously spent 13 years in the Perth Courier newsroom – first as reporter then as editor.

At Lake 88 she was fortunate to work with now-retired News Director Ian Sutton, who helped her make the transition from print to broadcast.

Her beat takes her to Smiths Falls, Perth and Lanark County council meetings where she learns all sorts of interesting things about our local communities.

With a background in education, Maureen takes pride in writing balanced stories that educate and inform.

Maureen and her husband Sid live in Perth. They have two adult children who have blessed them with three beautiful grandchildren – Sidney, Millie and Daniel.

When not warming council seats or toiling at the computer, Maureen enjoys spending time with her grandchildren, working on family history or making a mess in the kitchen.
