Tom Zillich

I cover entertainment, sports and news stories for Surrey Now-Leader, where I've worked for more than half of my 30-plus years in the news business. My biggest thrill on the job is meeting and writing about people who are creative, talented and achieve great things.
Passions in my "other" life include playing bass on local concert stages, swimming in sun-soaked pools and cheering the Canucks to just one (ONE!) Stanley Cup before I die.
