Mark Spector

Sports Writer / Author / TV Personality

I started out in the newspaper business at age nine with my first paper route, carrying the Edmonton Journal through the hilly streets of Laurier Heights, down near the zoo. I then worked for The Journal from 1987-2002, moved to the National Post, and in 2008 fled the newspaper industry for a job at Sportsnet. My first book, The Battle of Alberta, was released in October of 2015.

My two children - Rudy and Haley - are healthy and happy, as are my step sons Landon and Jayce. I live in St. Albert now but have always considered myself an Edmontonian.
