From its modest beginnings in 1866, to its evolution over the last century and a half, to an examination of what journalists covering Parliament Hill have to do to stay relevant, Josh Wingrove, Jennifer Ditchburn and Janice Tibbetts discuss their upcoming book about the Parliamentary Press Gallery with moderator Chris Waddell.
Josh Wingrove is a co-editor of Sharp Wits and Busy Pens/les coulisses de la tribune, a book to be published this May about 150 years of the press gallery. Josh, a political journalist with Bloomberg in Ottawa, joined the gallery in 2013.
Jennifer Ditchburn, a longtime political journalist on Parliament Hill, joined the gallery in 1997, working for CBC and The Canadian Press until her departure in February to become Editor-in-Chief of Policy Options. She graduated from Carleton in 2014 with a Master of Journalism degree.
Janice Tibbetts, a journalism instructor at Carleton, was a gallery member from 1996-2011, covering the Hill and the Supreme Cours of Canada for Postmedia and The Canadian Press. She obtained a Master of Journalism degree from Carleton in 2013.
Chris Waddell is an associate professor of journalism at Carleton and a former Parliamentary bureau chief for the CBC and the Globe and Mail. In addition to teaching, he serves as publisher of J-Source and is an associate editor at iPolitics.
