MEDIA OPERATIONS

GEOFF FONTES | DIRECTOR OF MEDIA OPERATIONS

Geoff is an award-winning (RTDNA/Edward R. Murrow) and Gemini-nominated videographer with 25 years of broadcast television experience on multiple levels, including community programming, commercial and corporate production, sports, local and national news.

Geoff began his broadcasting career right here in the West Kootenay in the early 90s, covering local events, including 'live' coverage of Smokies games. Shooting and producing hockey for broadcast has always been a passion of Geoff's, and he's thrilled to be back in the Kootenays, working with such an amazing organization as the Trail Smoke Eaters.

In addition to broadcast operations, Geoff is also responsible for the Smoke Eaters' online presence, including web, social media and visual marketing.
