Wendy Mesley

Wendy Mesley is one of Canada’s most recognized and respected broadcast journalists.. A provocative speaker, who addresses the  challenging issues of the day  with an entertaining and informative presentation style, Mesley is also an outstanding moderator, master of ceremonies and on-stage interviewer. Since becoming the CBC’s first female correspondent assigned to cover a Prime Minister,  Mesley has many years of first hand insight and anecdotes to share about  some of the most powerful and influential characters of our times.

Always a political junkie, Mesley also helped to create―and then hosted―CBC ‘s Undercurrents, the ground breaking program examining how media, marketing and technology were changing the world; and then became the co-host of CBC’s Marketplace, the consumer advocacy program.

Currently at The National, Mesley anchors the news on Friday and Sunday nights and is the regular back up anchor for Peter Mansbridge.
