CTV Announces Paul Workman As Washington Bureau Chief

Robert Hurst, President of CTV News and Current Affairs, announced today that Paul Workman has been appointed CTV’s Washington Bureau Chief, effective next Monday, February 2. Workman leaves his most recent post as CTV’s South Asia Bureau Chief to replace Tom Clark, who was recently appointed the new host of CTV Newsnet’s premiere daily political program ON THE HILL.

“Paul is an extraordinary journalist with decades of foreign bureau experience,” said Robert Hurst. “There is no one more qualified than Paul to take over in this role.”

“Reporting in Pakistan, India and Afghanistan for the past two years has been an incredible and difficult experience and I’m eager to take on this new challenge during such an exciting time in Washington,” said Workman.

Acclaimed journalist Paul Workman has lead CTV’s extensive coverage of news events in South Asia including the ongoing efforts of the Canadian troops in Afghanistan, the assassination of Benazir Bhutto and the fall of Pakistan’s former President Gen. Pervez Musharraf.

Contributing more than 30 years to Canadian journalism, Workman has a wealth of experience and has covered a multitude of national and international news events. Reporting from locations throughout Canada, the U.S., Europe and Asia, Workman has covered notable news events including war in the Middle East, the revolutionary changes in Eastern Europe and the tragic death of Princess Diana.

CTV’s new South Asia Bureau Chief will be announced later.
