Jake Courtepatte

I've been serving as the editor of Kelowna Capital News & West K News since February 2022. I relocated to Kelowna for this position, and I've loved every moment of living in this vibrant city. I moved out west in December of 2019, and during the pandemic years, I served as the editor of the Merritt Herald. After graduating from Wilfrid Laurier University, I spent the majority of my career working in the Toronto area as both a sports reporter and a general reporter. In my free time, I love to hike and explore the great outdoors. Go Leafs go!
