Chad Klassen

Chad Klassen joined the station in November 2011 after studying broadcast journalism at BCIT. It's been his long-time goal to make it in television. Inspired by his dad Rick, who enjoyed a 10-year CFL career with the B.C. Lions and Saskatchewan Roughriders, Chad's wanted to be a sportscaster from the time he was young, and sports is still his dream. But covering the great stories and people of the Kamloops community has quickly become just as important. Prior to coming to CFJC-TV, Chad headed up a university football show on Shaw TV, producing and co-hosting the half hour show on the CIS gridiron. He also spent three years covering CIS football as the sports editor at Simon Fraser University, covering the Clan's triumphant resurgence from a winless program to a conference finalist. Chad called hockey and volleyball play-by-play during his time on the Burnaby campus while finishing his Communications degree. But his career highlight to this point has been covering the Men's hockey tournament at the 2010 Winter Olympics. He watched nearly every game of the tournament from the upper deck of Canada Hockey Place in Vancouver and witnessed maybe the greatest goal in Canadian hockey history, Sidney Crosby's golden goal standing behind the net. Chad has family connections in Kamloops. His mom Pat lived here for five years as a teenager and his uncle Reg, who graduated here, still resides in the area.
