Event description

Description


The jewel in the crown of The National In Conversation series, this marquee event sees CBC’s foreign correspondents join CBC’s chief correspondent Peter Mansbridge in a candid, in-depth discussion on the challenges and rewards of their craft.

Live from the CBC’s Barbara Frum Atrium, the ninety-minute discussion will be live-streamed on Facebook, Youtube and cbcnews.ca. It will be recorded for a 1-hour television primetime News Special the following weekend (June 3 and 4).

Engagement with the (live and digital) audience is key to this town hall - while the panel will be equipped to discuss many aspects of their day-to- day experiences in the field, audience questions will guide the conversation. This will provide a unique opportunity for the public to engage in a discussion on the importance of foreign reporting with CBC's top journalists who are gathered in Canada after bringing stories on the some of the world's most challenging places home to Canadians.

The National in Conversation features the following Panelists:
Nahlah Ayed
Keith Boag
Margaret Evans
Nil Koksal
Matt Kwong
Sasa Petricic




Topic:

Foreign Correspondents: the challenges and rewards of their craft, and why foreign coverage matters more now than ever.
