Remembering Tyler Bieber, journalist killed in Saskatchewan crash

We would like to express our deepest sympathies to the families and friends of the 15 victims of the Humboldt Broncos hockey team bus crash, including Tyler Bieber, a young sports journalist.

The junior hockey team had been on their way to Nipawin, Sask., for a semifinal game when the crash occurred on Friday. Bieber covered the team through his work as a broadcaster and play-by-play announcer for the Humboldt radio station 107.5 Bolt FM. 

He's being remembered as a hardworking, kind colleague, who was enterprising and loved sharing the excitement of sports with his audience. His loss is felt deeply across the Canadian journalism community and beyond.

We also are thinking about all the journalists impacted by this tragedy, including those doing the incredibly difficult job of covering this. Please take care and seek mental health supports if needed.  

Update: We are saddened to learn that another young journalist by the name of Brody Hinz was involved in the Humboldt bus tragedy last Friday. Hinz compiled game statistics for 107.5 Bolt FM and was mentored by Tyler Bieber. Our sympathies go out to his family, friends and colleagues during this difficult time.
