Day 7 of my Olympic audio interview series features a digital content producer, born and raised in Cobourg, now based in Toronto…Sarah Jenkins.
In this interview, our discussion includes Sarah’s love of sports from a young age, her work for CBC in Toronto during two Olympic Games, the interesting projects and beats from her former job with Yahoo Sports, which included covering the Toronto Maple Leafs and working on other projects including producing podcasts. She also speaks about the unique experience of working at the same NHL game as her younger twin sisters, some of the women in sports journalism she looks up to, why she loves the Olympics and her new role with CBC leading production for their new digital studio.

NOTE: While we wait for local sports to return following the COVID-19 pandemic, a big part of JG Sports Media’s website content will be audio interviews, like this one. Guests will include representatives from local sports organizations as well as other notable guests, many who have ties to this area and even some who don’t.
This Olympic series will run from July 24 until Aug. 9.
