Jeremy Hannaford

As a new member of the 100 Mile House Free Press, Jeremy Hannaford is primed to prove himself to the team and to the community of 100 Mile House that he is ready to provide some fun and engaging articles about local sports and entertainment.

He just graduated from the University of the Fraser Valley with a diploma in media literacy and is grateful to have a job in the news industry so early out of the gate.

Hannaford was the entertainment writer for his university’s newspaper for three years. He also wrote several articles for news, opinion, and sports with his first article being about the 2013 Search and Rescue Games in Chilliwack.

Having lived in the town of Aldergrove his entire life, the move to 100 Mile House has certainly been a daunting one, but Hannaford says he is more than ready to take on whatever comes his way.

A big fan of all forms of entertainment and always ready to snap a great picture of a sports game, Hannaford notes he is up for anything the people of 100 Mile House and area can throw his way.

To contact him, folks can call 250-395-2219 (message ext. 206), or e-mail him at jeremy.hannaford@100milefreepress.net.
