    Dave Tait started in journalism reporting for daily newspapers in Ottawa, Calgary and London, Ont. and at the Whitehorse Star in Yukon. He then fell in love with radio, working as a producer, reporter, manager and trainer in the Canadian North, China and Southeast Asia.

    He is a graduate of Carleton’s J-School – twice over: He came for his BJ in the mid-’70s and returned in the mid-’90s for an MJ, seeing the school as the perfect place to tackle questions he’d collected throughout his career. He’s been teaching here since 1994, specializing in the fundamentals of reporting, ethics and radio journalism.
