Broadcast Dialogue – The Podcast: CAJ President Brent Jolly

Brent Jolly

Brent Jolly has inherited the presidency of the Canadian Association of Journalists (CAJ) at what might arguably be one of the most turbulent periods for media in the organization’s history.

With pandemic media layoffs now in the thousands, he also comes into the position as journalism finds its credibility under attack and press freedoms under pressure.

On this episode of the podcast, we talk about the COVID-19 Media Impact Map project the CAJ is involved with, broken business models, and the road ahead for Canadian journalism.
