Jody Vance is a born and raised Vancouverite who’s spent 30 years in both local and national media. The first woman in the history of Canadian TV to host her own sports show in primetime, since 2011 she’s been working in both TV and radio covering news and current affairs.
- Last week, Jody Vance welcomed Rob Shaw to talk the snap election, what it’s like covering one during a pandemic, and the crazy story of how they first met.
- Right after the debate Shachi Kurl moderated so deftly on Tuesday, Maclean Kay and Jordan Bateman weighed in with their reactions on #BCPOLI Hotstove.
- In September, Dene Moore figured if we really do have to get through a pandemic election, the one bright side is forcing the parties to find new and novel ways to engage voters.
