Bruce Wark

The New York Times does not have a bureau in Sackville, N.B., but The New Wark Times does.

It began covering local news in Sackville, N.B. in 2016 written and compiled by retired journalist Bruce Wark who 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 about national politics.

Wark 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, Wark wrote columns and features for the alternative Halifax weekly, The Coast.

He lives in Sackville, New Brunswick and contributes interviews to the American-based website New Books Network and is a frequent contributor to Wikipedia with featured articles on Harold Innis, Ursula Franklin and Angus L. Macdonald.

      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.

    In these days of decreasing quality of printed media, especially for small towns, I feel we, in Sackville and the surrounding area, are truly so fortunate to have Bruce voluntarily ‘take up the torch’ over here in the digital world and shine a very bright unbiased light on the local subjects that really matter. Thank you Bruce!

  6. I’d like to chat with you some time about Ursula Franklin, Bruce. I had the good fortune to talk with her a few times. What an amazing person she was.
