TVO is excited to announce that Claude Sharma and David Rockne Corrigan have joined the Ontario Hubs team of journalists as editors for the Northeastern and Eastern Hubs, respectively. These new hubs will strengthen the voices and under-represented perspectives of communities across these regions.
Claude Sharma joined the team this April as the Northeastern Ontario Hub Editor. Previously, he was a mobile journalist and anchor at CTV Northern Ontario, based in Sudbury and Timmins. He has also been a reporter and anchor with TVCogeco in North Bay. Claude studied journalism at Mohawk College. Claude is based in Sudbury, through a TVO partnership with Laurentian University. Claude’s first story sheds light on how Indigenous girls are building confidence through hockey.
David joined the team in February and is returning to his hometown of Kingston as the Eastern Ontario Hub Editor. He will be based out of Queen’s University, as part of a TVO partnership with the university. David graduated from Ryerson University’s School of Journalism and was previously a producer at the CBC’s The Investigators with Diana Swain. Among David’s recent work for Ontario Hubs is an article that investigated an accident-prone section of Highway 401 in Eastern Ontario, and another article on how the legacy of Canada’s first prime minister has divided people in Kingston.
Claude and David join an on-the-ground TVO Ontario Hubs journalist team that includes Jon Thompson in Thunder Bay, Mary Baxter in London, Jeyan Jeganathan, Adam McDowell, and Mark Brosens.
Ontario Hubs are made possible by The Barry and Laurie Green Family Charitable Trust & Goldie Feldman.
