CBC Radio host Shelagh Rogers will be installed as the University of Victoria’s 11th chancellor on Monday.

Rogers will take her oath from Lt.-Gov. Judith Guichon in an afternoon ceremony at the University Centre Farquhar Auditorium.

She is a resident of Gabriola Island off Nanaimo.  She travels the country, conversing with authors and readers of all kinds, for the program she hosts, ‘The Next Chapter’ on CBC Radio One.  A new episode airs every Monday.  Rogers intends to continue her broadcasts while serving as Chancellor.

  1. Does she have any post-secondary or academic experience? What exactly are her qualifications for such a job?
    Just find it slightly amusing if living on the island and being in media are the only requirements one needs for such a job.

  2. According to Wikipedia, Shelagh graduated from Queen’s University’s arts program (Art history) in 1977. And she has been one of the CBC’s most highly regarded broadcasters for decades.
    Whenever you hear Ms. Rogers onair, she bespeaks quality.
