Roger Knox

I am a journalist with more than 30 years of experience in the industry. I started my career in radio and have spent the last 21 years working with Black Press Media. Over the course of my career, I've worked in various towns, including Quesnel, Fort St. James, Vanderhoof, and Salmon Arm, before finally returning to my hometown of Vernon. I'm proud to be a member of the Vernon Senior Secondary School Class of 1981, and I'm also a licensed wedding officiant in the Province of B.C. In my free time, I enjoy appearing on stage with a local theatre company and reminiscing about my time as Mr. Quesnel in 1984. As a sports enthusiast, I'm a devoted fan of the Montreal Canadiens, Boston Red Sox, and B.C. Lions. Although I wish I could sing or play a musical instrument other than the triangle, my lack of musical talent doesn't stop me from enjoying all types of music.
