Jim Taylor

Born in Nipawin, Saskatchewan, Jim spent his teen years in Winnipeg where he used to sneak into Osborne Stadium to watch the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

Taylor cut his journalistic teeth in Victoria, British Columbia with the Colonial before moving to the big time in Vancouver in 1966 where he worked for the Sun and then for the Province. Taylor has written two sports books and his sense of humour is his stock and trade.

Inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame-Media Wing in 1989
