Carleton University’s journalism program welcomed Ginella Massa, host of CBC’s Canada Tonight, to share her story at the first in-person event for students since March of 2020.

The orientation day event was held Tuesday morning in Carleton’s Dominion-Chalmers Centre in front of a live audience of second-year journalism students – all carefully socially distanced – and also for others who joined by Zoom.

Massa, who is Canada’s first hijab-wearing television news reporter, local anchor and national host, took part in a wide-ranging hour-long conversation with Prof. Nana aba Duncan, Carleton’s Carty Chair in Journalism, Diversity and Inclusion Studies. Master of Journalism student Haneen Al-Hassoun provided a note of thanks at the end of the event.
