Canadian Premier League Adds Kristian Jack To Editorial Team
The Canadian Premier League has announced that renowned sports journalist Kristian Jack has taken on the role of Vice President of Media and Content with the burgeoning domestic league.
The league had been without a senior editorial executive after John Molinaro stepped down from his director of content post this April in order to resume a TFC beat with TFC Republic. Prior to that, the predecessor to the role was held by OneSoccer’s Kurt Larson.
Kristian Jack is a name that will be very familiar to Canadian soccer fans from coast-to-coast, with the journalist having been a familiar face on Canadian television from his time with the likes of TSN and The Score. It was there where he made waves as a lead host and analyst who could communicate tactics, storylines, and complex soccer analysis in an understandable and enjoyable manner.
Kristian Jack’s journey into the professional world of reporting began at the 1996 European Championship, and some 25 years later his role in growing the game in Canada isn’t over yet. With the 2021 Canadian Premier League season set to kick off in just three week’s time, he’s already got a lot of work on his plate.
We are extremely excited to have Kristian join the Canadian Premier League. His talent, extensive knowledge and proven success are going to take us to the next level of storytelling and content for soccer fans from coast-to-coast. His deep understanding of this space, his ability to tell stories as well as bring an elevated level of tactical analysis of matches will lead us to the next phase of growth that will further strengthen CanPL.caDavid Clanachan
The league described the hiring as bringing in an strong leader with a proven track record of developing quality and entertaining content as a football journalist. In his new role, he’ll oversee the official CanPL.ca website with the goal of creating further awareness for the league and its eight clubs.
Kristian will continue to be part of the OneSoccer team, with the journalist set to continue providing on-air analysis for national team and CPL broadcasts. We wish him the best of luck in his new role.
