Nominations for Canadian Newsperson of the Year

December 13, 2008

Who was the Canadian Newsperson of the Year 2008? J-Source is collecting nominations, and it's going to be a tough call, for sure.

2008 was a year when journalists didn't just break news but in the process made news as well. Most recently, Mellissa Fung's kidnapping catapulted her (and the CBC's John Cruickshank) into the spotlight.'s always provocative Heather Mallick stirred up controversy, as did Steve Murphy at CTV with his interview of Liberal leader Stéphane Dion, and The Globe and Mail's Margaret Wente. Sarah Fulford moved up to the top job at Toronto Life magazine and John Macfarlane took over at The Walrus.

And that's just a start. Beyond controversies and editor's-chair changes, reporters and editors broke their share of stories and cast light on tough issues. We could list some of our picks, but here's a better idea: who do you think is the Canadian Newsperson of the Year?

Send us an email with your nominations and check back to vote for your choice among the finalists, who will be selected by the editors next week.
