John Matheson[1] (July 25, 1924 – January 24, 2011) was a Canadian sports journalist known for his wide coverage of sports for the Winnipeg Tribune from 1946 to 1980.[2]

Matheson was born on July 25, 1924 in Winnipeg, Manitoba.[2] He began his newspaper career in 1946 with the Winnipeg Tribune. He became the sports editor for the newspaper in 1959, a position he held until the newspaper ceased publication in 1980.[2] Matheson covered a variety of sports, including hockey, curling and football with the Tribune, and on the radio, working with CJOB.

Matheson was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 1986[3] and Manitoba Hockey Hall of Fame in 1999.[2] The Jack Matheson Award is annually presented by the Manitoba Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association to aspiring students in sports communications.[2]

Matheson was married to his wife Peggy for 63 years until his death. Matheson's son, James Donald "Jim" is also a distinguished sports writer, working for the Edmonton Journal since 1970. Jim was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame as a media honoree and received the Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award in 2000.[4]

Jack Matheson died of kidney disease on January 24, 2011, at Grace Hospital in Winnipeg.[5]
