Ragnar Haagen is a reporter for Castanet News and a graduate of the Broadcast Journalism program at BCIT.

Before joining the Castanet team, he worked as a reporter/anchor for Rawlco Radio in Prince Albert, SK where his main beats were courts/crime and breaking news.

After managing to survive one of the mildest winters on record in Saskatchewan, he made his escape and is happy to be back in BC.

Ragnar loves sports, and when he's not tracking down stories, can be found on the soccer pitch or the baseball diamond.
