WHO I AM
I’m Julius Hern, and I’m a 21 year old aspiring sports broadcaster and sportswriter from Barrie, ON.
I’m an extremely passionate fan of a wide variety of sports, both inside and outside of Canada, and am constantly tuning into some kind of sporting event every day.
I attended Cambrian College in Sudbury, ON, graduating from the media communications program in 2023. At Cambrian, we learned skills such as journalism, public relations, video/audio production, photography, digital media and marketing, digital design, and more.
I’ve also briefly volunteered for the Sudbury Wolves of the Ontario Hockey League, fulfilling duties such as graphic design, photography, and creating content for social media.
My goal is to be able to share my passion for sports with readers, listeners, and viewers worldwide with my strong writing and announcing. My goal is to work in the United States as a play-by-play announcer for a variety of professional sports on television and radio, while continuing to contribute to a regular writing column in a major newspaper or online medium.
WHAT I DO
I will be serving as a broadcaster for the Intercounty Baseball League’s Barrie Baycats for the 2023 season, while also filling reporting, photography, and writing duties.
I will be begin attending the College of Sports Media in Toronto in the fall of 2023, with graduation expected in the summer of 2025 after completion of a broadcasting internship.
I’m also soon launching a sports blog and podcast along with two of my friends called the Bulletin of Professional Sports (BOPS), where we focus on some of the lesser-known stories and discussions happening in the world of sports. Expect that to be launching heading into the summer of 2023.
