After noticing a lack of real-time information when cottaging in Muskoka, Stefan Ottenbrite decided to create a solution by launching Muskoka411 News, cottage country’s go-to source for breaking news. The Canadian digital news platform led by Stefan Ottenbrite has been bringing Muskoka the latest in in-depth coverage of community updates, weather reports, and more ever since.
According to Stefan, people “should get the news as it happens.” With team members across the region, Muskoka411 is able to cover a wide range of stories in a timely and professional manner.
“Whether it’s a breaking story, local and cottage country traffic updates, or up-to-the-minute weather details, Muskoka411 is committed to bringing you the most timely, factual, and comprehensive news coverage in the district. Muskoka411 covers the entire Muskoka region as well as surrounding areas including Orillia, Parry Sound, Algonquin Highlands, Haliburton, and more.”
Stefan Ottenbrite has been leading Muskoka411 ever since he founded the company in 2014. His initial interest in journalism and news became apparent at a young age when he undertook the role of filming mock trials and participating in Speaker’s Corner in Grade 8.
Despite the myriad of challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic posed to the world, the devoted professionals of Muskoka411 were and still are in the field to break the latest news to Canadians. While other outlets struggled, the 411 team stayed positive and got creative, strengthening the brand and continuing to bring the best news coverage to its hundreds of thousands of readers.
Stefan Ottenbrite takes a hands-on approach with his work, handling day-to-day business operations in addition to hopping in the 411 news vehicles to report on local issues firsthand.
After noticing a house fire in Mississauga, Stefan went on scene from beginning to end. The coverage for Jewel 88.5 FM landed him the Best Radio News Award from Peel Regional Police in 2017.
When Stefan is not working, he enjoys sports, concerts, brunch and giving back to the community.
Stefan is profoundly proud of the many achievements of the Muskoka411 team, stating:
“Our audience expects us to bring them the news first and I’m thrilled to have a fully committed team that does that each day. After seven successful years, I’m excited to see what the future holds for this team and brand.”
