Tom Clark

Host of Global TV's The West Block with Tom Clark

One of Canada’s premier broadcast journalists, Tom Clark has reported on the local, national, and international stories that have shaped Canada for the past 25 years. Witness to many of the history-making events during this time, Clark brings his unique perspective to his speaking and moderating engagements.

Clark is Global National News’ chief political correspondent and hosts the weekly political program The West Block with Tom Clark, which discusses issues Canadians want to hear about. Previously, Clark was the host of CTV’s daily political program Power Play with Tom Clark and senior correspondent of North America’s longest-running current affairs program, W-Five.  His hard-hitting investigations were recognized and honoured internationally as well as domestically.

Clark has a long history of covering politics in Canada. He has covered every federal election campaign since 1974, as well as numerous provincial campaigns. He has interviewed nearly every prime minister since Pierre Trudeau, and in a previous role, he secured Canada’s first televised interview with a sitting US president in over 30 years.

Clark has reported from five war zones, most notably from Southern Iraq in 2003. Prior to his “tour,” he was the only Canadian reporter in Belgrade during the Yugoslav war. He also did two coverage tours in the Persian Gulf War, as well as two tours of duty in Bosnia. In the early 1980s, Clark was the bureau chief in CTV’s Beijing bureau in China, where he became one of the first Western journalists to report from Tibet. He also was the only Western journalist to get an interview with the son of Chinese leader Deng Xiao Ping, during which he uncovered a previously secret connection of that family to Canada.

Clark is fully bilingual.

Animateur de Global TV pour The West Block et jounaliste prime

Clark a à son actif une expérience étendue dans le domaine de l’actualité qui enrichit son rôle de correspondant en chef du bureau de CTV à Washington, où il effectue des reportages sur une vaste palette de faits d’actualité à la fois nationaux et internationaux. Il fait de la Maison-Blanche son point de mire. Auparavant, Clark a été animateur et correspondant en chef de W-FIVE, l’émission portant sur les questions d’actualité la plus diffusée de l’Amérique du Nord. Il y a effectué des enquêtes féroces qui ont bouleversé tous les Canadiens.

Clark compte parmi les journalistes les plus expérimentés et les plus respectés du Canada. Il a effectué des reportages sur les événements locaux, nationaux et internationaux qui ont profondément marqué le pays au cours des 25 dernières années. Il a couvert toutes les élections fédérales et une grande partie des élections provinciales. Tous les premiers ministres lui ont accordé des entrevues. Il a été le présentateur vedette de plus de 12 soirées électorales et en 2006, le premier journaliste canadien sur une période de plus de 30 ans à se voir accorder un entretien avec le président des États-Unis.

Clark a effectué des reportages à partir de cinq différentes zones de combat, la plus récente se situant en Iraq du Sud, au moment de la récente invasion de ce pays. Antérieurement, il a été le seul reporteur canadien à être présent à Belgrade durant la guerre de Yougoslavie. Au début des années 80, Clark a rempli la fonction de chef de bureau pour le réseau CTV à Beijing en Chine. Bien qu’originaire de Toronto, c’est à Montréal que Clark a débuté sa carrière à CFCF.

Il est le descendant d’une longue lignée de journalistes. Joseph T. Clark, son arrière- grand-père, occupait déjà le rôle de rédacteur du magazine Saturday Night et de rédacteur en chef du Toronto Star. Quant à son grand-père, il était reporteur pour The Star et par la suite, au cours de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, chef du service d’information public des forces armées, navales et aériennes. Son père a joué un rôle phare dans la fondation et la direction de Canada Newswire et son arrière-oncle Gregory Clark a été acclamé et déclaré l’un des journalistes et écrivains canadiens les plus renommés.

Tom Clark a donné à sa fonction de conférencier une perspective unique et internationale qui fait rayonner l’empathie et la vivacité d’esprit.
