Wendy Mesley To Host New CBC Sunday Morning Talk Show

You’re going to be seeing and hearing a lot more of CBC News journalist Wendy Mesley when the veteran broadcaster hosts a new Sunday morning talk show set to launch in early 2018.

The interactive program will focus on the intersection of media, technology and politics and be broadcast live on CBC and CBC News Network every Sunday morning, according to a statement from CBC.

Further details, including the show’s name will be announced by the broadcaster at a later date.

“I’m thrilled,” Mesley said in a statement.

“The two obsessions of my career have been politics and media – and these days they’ve become almost inseparable. This new show is a perfect fit for me.”

Meanwhile, Mesley will continue in her role as an anchor of The National until its much anticipated relaunch with a new format in the fall, after which she will move to a contributor role for the news broadcast. Mesley will also continue hosting The Passionate Eye.

Mesley’s career in broadcast journalism began in 1979, first with CTV’s CFCF in Montreal before moving to CBC as a legislative reporter for local news and The National.
