Tessa Sproule is the new Director, Digital at CBC as of April 1. The role is a new one created within the CBC's English Services "Content Office, she told J-Source.

"I'm responsible for our digital content offerings across CBC — what/why/how we create content that uses digital tools/platforms etc. to engage with Canadians," Sproule said. "It's a progression from what I was doing previously as director of interactive content for our scripted and unscripted programming — but this new role expands that to cover all areas and genres of the CBC."


Sproule said she will also ensure that those experiences are shared across the CBC. 

Tamara Baluja is an award-winning journalist with CBC Vancouver and the 2018 Michener-Deacon fellow for journalism education. She was the associate editor for J-Source from 2013-2014.
