Event description

Description

Lorne began fostering his love for newspapers 34 years ago as a copy boy, the entry level job of the newsroom. Born in Didsbury, AB., Lorne attended school in the prairie town of Carstairs before enrolling at Mount Royal in Calgary. He graduated with honours in journalism. In 2010 Mount Royal University awarded him its Legacy Award for lifetime professional achievement. He now chairs the MRU Journalism Advisory board and also sits on the Dean’s Advisory Committee for the Bissett School of Business and MRU Centre for Communications.

During his tenure, the Calgary Herald has received a broad array of national and international accolades, including numerous National Newspaper Awards, three Citations of Merit in the Michener Awards for public service journalism, the Canadian Hillman Prize in Journalism, dozens of National Magazine awards, and the Online News Association award in breaking news -- the top honour in North American digital journalism. This spring the Herald was again a winner at the National Newspaper Awards, and a winner of two honours from the International News Media Association, a global competition, for best ideas news journalism.

Lorne is a great lover of small towns, the prairies and its people. He enjoys hiking mountains, reading, live arts and culture, and watching all sports - particularly his son Liam, who plays hockey in the Ivy League at Cornell University. His eldest son and daughter also are university grads and Masters participants. He resides in southwest Calgary with his wife, Suzanne.
