At our next Brews & News networking event, please join CPRS Manitoba for a timely discussion with:

  • Monique LaCoste, bilingual announcer at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics’ team welcome ceremonies at Athletes’ Village, working alongside Sandra Oh and Athletes’ Village Mayors Rick Hanson and Tricia Smith, and French announcer for curling; and
  • Kyle Jahns, 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics’ curling and wheelchair curling reporter for Olympic and Paralympic News Services.

Celebrating 30 years as a communicator in 2018, Monique LaCoste spent nearly two decades as a radio and television host and journalist. Since her departure from Radio-Canada in 2005, Monique has worked in communications and media relations roles for several non-profits, including 2017 Canada Summer Games, St. Boniface Hospital Foundation, and Université de Saint-Boniface. She is also a sought-after voice-over artist and master of ceremonies, with more than three decades experience hosting countless community events.

Kyle Jahns graduated from Creative Communications at Red River College in 2013, and he has since built his career as a media and communications professional internationally. Kyle is the communications coordinator for Winnipeg Humane Society, as well as a freelance writer for Curling Canada.

Drink to our guests of honour as they recount their experiences for us while we gather round the screen(s) to watch …

(What else did you expect?!)

Hope to see you there!
