Colton Praill, News and Sports Reporter

Born in our Nation’s Capital, Ottawa, Colton started out in corporate marketing.  Hours of copy-writing, voice work, and video production slowly transformed into a new passion: journalism.  After attending the College of Sports Media, he headed to Rogers Sportsnet Digital as an online writer and then CJ Radio in Manitoba as a drivetime host.  But he quickly realized he wanted to do more than recount other reporters’ stories, he wanted to create his own as a videojournalist.

And so far, he’s enjoyed the variety that his job allows, including everything from RedBLACKS games to interviewing Canadian country superstar Dean Brody.  Locally, he covers news and sports, but he has a secret passion for musical theatre.  A true Renaissance man.

You can catch Colton on the TBT News weeknights and weekends.
