Bruce Wark

The New York Times does not have a news bureau in Sackville, N.B., but The New Wark Times does. It covers local news and views written and compiled by a retired journalist.

Bruce Wark worked in broadcasting and journalism education for more than 35 years. He was at CBC Radio for nearly 20 years as senior editor of network programs such as The World at Six and World Report. He was the first producer of The House, a Saturday morning program on national politics.

Bruce also served as Legislative Reporter in Ontario and as National Reporter for the Maritime Provinces. His last job with CBC Radio was as producer of Media File, a weekly network program that reported on issues concerning journalism and the media.

In 1991, he began a 15-year career as a professor in the School of Journalism at the University of King’s College. Among other things, he taught the History and Ethics of Journalism.

For 16 years, he wrote columns and features for the alternative Halifax weekly, The Coast.

Bruce now lives in Sackville, New Brunswick. He contributes interviews to the American-based website New Books Network and volunteers as a journalist with CHMA-FM, the campus radio station at Mount Allison University.

      Bruce,

      Great radio piece on 500 Days In the Wild. I really like the connection between Deanne’s personal journey and nature and history. Excited to hear part 2.

      Best,
      Lisa Tondino
