Tonight on this special edition of Perspectives Daily, I had a chance to sit and talk to a Canadian legend in the TV News business. He is chief correspondent for CBC News, and the anchor of CBC Television's flagship nightly newscast, The National
. He has a name everyone knows, and the the voice that everyone recognizes. His reputation has been synonymous with the calm, clear and factual reporting, of the world’s greatest news events for the past 5 decades.
In fact, it’s been said that, Peter Mansbridge
has been paramount to making CBC News the most trusted brand in news in the country.
At our new offices, Peter reflected back at his 50 years in news broadcasting and spoke to me about the most memorable & emotional catholic event he covered for CBC
and also what he thought was the most significant contribution of the Catholic Church to Canada.
Peter also shared a memorable Fr. Rosica
story and how their friendship and trust grew over the many years. If he had a chance to sit and talk to the Pope, there are a few things that he'd like to talk to him about. Although, with Peter retiring from the CBC flagship daily news show The National
on July 1st, he still extends a friendly invitation to the Holy Father for an interview!
Retiring but not slowing down, Peter shares with us whats next for him after July 1, 2017.
