About Us

Apryl Munro and Sarah Lajeunesse






Sarah Lajeunesse and Apryl Munro became fast friends while working together as news Videographers with Rogers TV in Simcoe County in 2004. They covered countless breaking news stories over the years and learned so much about the area, the people and the community as a whole.

While their careers sent Sarah to Vancouver to work as a producer and reporter in the video production industry and then Apryl to Toronto as the Associate News Producer for Breakfast Television, they remained the best of friends. After starting families and working in different fields, they wanted to combine their two loves: Family and Television. In the summer of 2016 TKL was born, giving them an opportunity to engage on-camera while still being able to pick up and drop off their kids from school.

Their friendship has remained a constant part of their lives over the years, confiding in each other over parenting and so much more. Now, they bring their daily chats to you on This Kinda Life, Simcoe County’s online Lifestyle show.
