About Diverge Media

Two Brothers are the founders of Diverge Media. Let us walk you through our story.

After graduating from Conestoga College with a diploma in Multimedia Journalism, Broderick Visser decided to do something different. Job markets looked bleak so he decided he would build his resume by starting his own news site.

His brother who had gone to school for web development built the website. After some back and forth over name, Diverge Weekly turned into Diverge Media and the journey began.

After seeing Broderick take his writing serious, and working hard to build Diverge Media, a decision was made. Gregory Staley chose to leave his job in the Canadian Armed Forces as a reservist. He had just begun his journey and not yet gone to BMQ.

He reached out up the chain of command for release “I believe I can do more to serve my country by covering what’s going on in the media then I can by serving as a reservist in the military.” With his release granted, Greg joined the Diverge Media team and the hustle to cover the “stories that matter” has been on ever since.
