Charmaine De Silva Exits CBC for CKNW



Charmaine made the announcement on her Facebook page this afternoon.

“Some big news! It is really with mixed emotion that I announce I am leaving the CBC. I have really enjoyed my time working with some of the best journalists in the country. At the same time, I am super excited to be going back to a place I know well, and love. Starting mid next month, I will be the Assistant News Director at CKNW! I’ll also be reporting again! Grateful for opportunities I have had, the people I have worked with, the lessons I have learned. Excited about this new chapter in my life.”


  1. What does assistant news director actually mean at that station? What about Gord MacDonald? He was news director for a while some years back. Still remember his epic coverage, with Peter Warren, of the TWA 800 crash coverage.
