Tyler grew up in Vernon, graduated with a bachelor of journalism from Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, and then went to work for his hometown paper. In 2010, he moved to the Fraser Valley to start working at the now-defunct Chilliwack Times and began reporting for the Abbotsford News in 2014. Over the last decade, Tyler has covered crime, courts, politics, municipal affairs, health care, and a range of other issues. He has been nominated five times for the Jack Webster Award for Community Reporting, winning twice. Tyler launched the Current in March after identifying a local need for a journalism outlet that prioritizes quality and depth.
