The Rocky Mountain Goat has a new civic reporter!
Spencer Hall will be reporting for the Goat under the Local Journalism Initiative Program, a federally-funded program aimed at increasing civic journalism in underserved communities.
After graduating from BCIT’s Radio Arts & Entertainment program, Spencer got his start in media at Moose FM in Fort St. John as a summer cruiser host before transitioning into the station’s newsroom, Energeticcity.ca as a daily reporter where he discovered his passion for written storytelling. He found himself wanting to dig deeper into stories shaping the community and later took on an investigative journalism role with the company before relocating to Valemount.
Coming from a radio background, Spencer brings a unique blend of creativity and journalistic expertise to his work.
Born and raised in Terrace B.C., Spencer says his upbringing made him aware of the essential role local journalism and independent media play in fostering informed communities, especially in small rural areas.
We’re excited to have Spencer on the team. He’ll be delving into topics that are funded by, regulated by, or pertaining to any level of government. Feel free to reach out to him anytime with questions or story ideas at [email protected].
