Impactful Storytelling. Creative delivery.
Josh Kim is a freelance photographer, journalist, producer and podcast host based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Sport Media at Ryerson University's world renowned RTA School of Media. As a second-year student, he is currently the team photographer and writer for the OHL's Barrie Colts, a varsity athletics photographer & features producer with Ryerson athletics, a fully credentialed CHL photographer, a story editor with TSN, as well as a production assistant with CBC Sports, having worked on both the 2020 Tokyo and 2022 Beijing Olympic Games.
After spending four years at the helm of the content department of his alma mater, Josh has gained valuable experience in digital content creation, writing, and producing.

A winner of Sportsnet's inaugural Gender Equity & Diversity scholarship, Josh continues to create content on a wide range of digital content platforms, mainly through photography, writing and feature production. In addition to his wealth of experience covering various sporting events, he's taken a passion for storytelling, which he amplifies in written, photo and video format. Whether it be a quick conversation about photos or a full-fledged documentary, impactful interactions with athletes and clients are at the forefront of his work.
Josh is also the host of the Get Your Head in the Game podcast, which aims to shine a light on the relationship between sports and mental health. With some high profile guests already making an appearance (ie. LA Kings prospect Akil Thomas & TSN icon James Duthie), the podcast can be found on all major social media platforms and wherever you get your podcasts.
Currently residing in Toronto, Josh often experiments with grilled cheese recipes in his spare time. Today, he's in the midst of travelling for assignments, producing feature stories and watching whatever Toronto sports team is on TV.
