Mason DePatie

Video Journalist

Lethbridge

Mason DePatie officially joined CTV Lethbridge in April 2019 after completing his school practicum with the station a month earlier.

Coming from a family of print journalists, he knows the importance of local news.

Mason’s first media job was a summer gig, working at Bell radio stations in Fort St. John. During his stint in Northern B.C., a reporter sneaked him a news camera and told him to film something. He came back a day later with a complete story and surprised the news director with it. From then on, the station allowed Mason to do news stories in his spare time.

Now a full-fledged journalist, he takes on any story that comes his way, no matter how big or small.

On his off days, you can catch Mason tinkering on his vintage jeep or working as a fry-cook/baker at his mom’s pie shop in Calgary.

Mason also puts his cooking skills to use volunteering at the Lethbridge Soup Kitchen.
