Ian Hanomansing, the Vancouver-based weekend host of CBC’s The National, will speak about British Columbia’s handling of COVID-19 and covering the coronavirus, on the next J-Talks Live webcast this Thursday, May 14.
“British Columbia has distinguished itself throughout this pandemic from the start, not only because it was where Canada’s first community-transmission cases appeared, but because of the approaches taken by leaders who have a say in this crisis,” said Anna Maria Tremonti, who hosts the J-Talks Live series. “I’m looking forward to speaking with Ian about his on-the-ground perspective, and what the reporting challenges are in this current reality.”
The event is part of the Canadian Journalism Foundation’s J-Talks program, which explores pressing journalistic issues. Hanomansing is one of the featured speakers in a special free series of 40-minute talks focused on journalism’s critical role in the COVID-19 crisis. Previous guests have included The Globe and Mail health reporter André Picard; Jane Lytvynenko, senior reporter with BuzzFeed News; and Nathan VanderKlippe, Asia correspondent for The Globe and Mail.
Those interested in joining the talk, this Thursday at 1 p.m. ET (10 a.m. PT) are asked to register. Past J-Talk videos and podcasts are also available.
