Speakers’ Spotlight is thrilled to welcome CBC Investigative Journalist Mark Kelley to our roster. He’s the newest member of The Fifth Estate team, but Mark’s career has spanned more than two decades at CBC News. Front and centre for some of the most dramatic stories in the world–from covering Canada’s mission in Afghanistan to reporting from the middle of the Arab Spring, Mark draws on his unique experiences to enlighten audiences on newsworthy events past, present, and future.
Mark has built his career connecting with Canadians. From hosting the program Connect, to spending seven days as a teacher in a struggling BC school, or living in a homeless shelter in Montreal, Mark has always gone one step further to tell the stories that matter to Canadians.
As the face of Connect, Kelley won a Gemini Award in 2011 for Best Host or Interviewer in a News Information Program. He has won four other Geminis for his work with CBC News: Disclosure, The National, CBC News: Morning and CBC’s Beijing Olympic broadcast.
