Ian Froese, Editor-in-chief
Ian has been around student media for a while. This is his fifth year, in fact. A path that began at the University of Manitoba, led to the Dalhousie Gazette and saw him become sports editor and now editor-in-chief. He can often be found in the Gazette office operating a publication he might care too much about—come visit! When not in the SUB or in class, Ian is a part-time traffic reporter at CBC Radio and an athletics broadcaster at Dalhousie, Saint Mary’s and King’s. Ian’s journalism has also appeared in The Carillon, a weekly newspaper in southeastern Manitoba. Ian was a 2013 recipient of the Jack Matheson Memorial Award, a scholarship for university students demonstrating an interest in sports media.
