Ready to dive in

Living in northeast Saskatchewan for just under two years, I’m ready to embark on a new challenge.

I’m Joshua Santos, and I’m the newest reporter for the Moose Jaw Times-Herald.

With the Times-Herald, I’d like to bring my experience, passion and news curiosity to your community.

I want to bring a fresh perspective to the stories you care about and tackle the issues you hold near and dear to your heart.

As a journalist, I want to become embedded in the city, understand the culture and find ways to deliver the news in a unique way that’s never been done before.

Before joining the team at the Times- Herald, I lived in Melfort, writing stories for the Melfort Journal and sister publications, Nipawin Journal and Northeast Sun. Working for the Journal was an exceptional experience. As a reporter in town, I primarily covered local city hall, sporting events, provincial politics, agricultural news and entertainment shows.

I had the opportunity to integrate myself with the town. I familiarized my- self with the same faces at all the events and truly understood the issues people care about, no matter how minor or major they are.

My roots can be traced back to my hometown of Pickering, Ont. Located just outside of Toronto, P-Town – as it’s referred to — has a population of approximately 100,000, and is where my family and friends still live.

I studied journalism at Durham College, in Oshawa, Ont. After completing my studies, I took the plunge, moving my belongings and life to Saskatch- ewan.

Outside of work, I’m a tness enthusiast. I love living an active, healthy lifestyle and can be seen running around town, jumping over slope trails or at a local gym crushing weights.

Paired with that, I enjoy binge-watching cooking shows, even though I don’t have the skill of an executive chef.

Aside from that, I love watching finance programs where new and creative business inventions are presented. I hope to enjoy my time in Moose Jaw. If you see me running around town with my camera, recorder or just casually, don’t be afraid to say hi. I don’t bite.
