Craig Beauchemin

I was born and raised in Whitehorse, Yukon, and gained a passion for sports around the age of thirteen.

My two favourite sports are hockey and baseball, but I can hold a conversation about any of the main sports, and enjoy watching highlights of any sport.

I am a Toronto Blue Jays fan, and while I was a Vancouver Canucks fan growing up, I have tried to shy away from being a fan of a particular hockey team since realizing that national broadcasters don't generally hold favourites.

I went to school in Belleville, Ontario, at Loyalist College for radio broadcasting and sports journalism, and hope to work as an NHL play-by-play voice one day.

I'm grateful to be in a place where there is seemingly always a hockey game going on that I can go to and take in, yet I am left wondering how I'll survive the summer.
