Born in Manitoba, Jeremy Prest relocated to Alberta in 2008. There, under the leadership of Leon Fontaine, he kickstarted a 15-year media career spanning journalism, editing, on-the-ground reporting and leading a non-profit media team. His coverage of the 2022 Freedom Convoy established him as a trusted Canadian voice and emphasized the need for responsible reporting. He now co-hosts CTZN, and in 2023, he took on the role of CEO at Miracle Channel. Jeremy routinely partakes in public speaking endeavours, contributing his insights and expertise to various forums. He and his wife, Tamara, are raising their three children in Calgary, AB.
David’s passion for current affairs and common-sense editorial commentary blossomed after his experience as a journalist in Ottawa during the Freedom Convoy of 2022. During his career as Director of Programming & Development, and working directly for Leon Fontaine, he’s had the opportunity to meet & build relationships with content producers and public figures from around the globe. His natural giftings as a communicator/public speaker, and his thirst for the truth lays a strong foundation to help bring reason and common sense back to Canadians. A dedicated father and husband, you might also catch David at a Calgary Flames game, or on the golf course.
