Coming up this Saturday at 1pm on Finding Your Bliss, Life Coach and Bliss Expert Judy Librach is joined by one of Canada’s most popular and respected television hosts and journalists, Valerie Pringle. In a wonderful interview, not only do they go down memory lane, but they also talk about Valerie’s upcoming PBS series called Canada Files, which features one-on-one interviews with celebrated Canadians.
Valerie Pringle has enjoyed a distinguished career as a broadcaster and journalist for more than 35 years. She was a well-known anchor of two national news programs – Midday on CBC and Canada AM on CTV where she covered major stories of the day, from national elections and Royal weddings, to space launches and natural disasters. She has reported from Mount Kilimanjaro to Haida Gwaii, and has hosted several television series including The Canadian Antiques Roadshow and Valerie Pringle Has Left the Building.
In recent years, Valerie has taken her leadership skills to the non-profit world. She has championed AIDS research for CANFAR, not only raising valuable funds but working to remove the stigma from the disease. She also played a key role in building the Trans Canada Trail across the country, working for more than 20 years to realize its vision. And she has been a tireless advocate for the treatment of mental illness, currently serving as Chair of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health Foundation.
In 2006 she was made a Member of the Order of Canada for her work in broadcasting and philanthropy. She received an Honourary Doctorate from Ryerson University in 2010 and is an honourary fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographic Society.
