Welcome to my journey

The Vision

Welcome to the Lil Z Big R Redblacks blog. Here, you will have access to top notch Redblacks related articles written by 15 year old junior reporter, Jordan Zlomislic. My family is and has been season ticket holders of the Redblacks since their existence. Through the past 6 seasons that the team has went through, I’ve found myself creating relationships with players, coaches, fans and all people who like the Redblacks. With all of the experiences I’ve had, including the unforgettable 2016 Grey Cup in Toronto, I decided to bring my knowledge of the game of football to work. I’ve always had the vision of becoming a sports broadcaster or journalist, but knowing how hard it is to get into the business, I wanted to start early, like very few others.

Starting early

Starting early is what many people think of doing but not many follow through with the thought of it. This past April, I followed through and launched this website. Since the launch, I’ve published 109 articles and had over 40 interviews with CFL front office employees, CFL players, coaches and even some CFL hall of famers. Along with the 109 articles posted, I’ve had a ton of fun. I’ve had some one of one interviews and experiences that many will never have the chance to have behind them along with multiple relationships that have grown and been built.

The experiences and relationships that I’ve built in my first season spent as a CFL reporter only gives reasons to keep at it. Not only am I ready to begin year two as Lil’ Z, but I’m ready for new beginnings.

New Beginnings

After a full season spent behind the keyboard, publishing articles and interviews, I’ve decided to bring a different level to the Lil Z Big R blog. Coming this February, I will start creating videos via YouTube along with podcasts via Apple Music, Spotify, and Google Play Music where I can use my voice to create Redblacks headlines along with some one of one interviews where you will see here and here only.

Thank you for a great year in 2019, I’m looking forward to starting the new year and decade with you. Go Redblacks!!
