CBC Presents: The National In Conversation with Peter Mansbridge* March 24, 2017 7 pmFree but tickets are requiredOn Friday, March 24, The National In Conversation heads to Charlottetown, P.E.I. CBC News' Chief Correspondent Peter Mansbridge will lead a nationwide conversation on a topic we've all witnessed over the last few years - The Changing Nature Of News. It's a rare opportunity to ask some of Canada's best journalists, satirists and opinion-makers how and why they get to the stories they do, and how that helps us understand our world.

Along with Peter, the panel are among the most recognizable faces in Canadian media. Susan Ormiston is a CBC Senior Correspondent and has reported from over 25 countries and conflict zones, having most recently returned from Putin's Russia. Rosemary Barton is the host of CBC News Network's award-winning daily political show, Power and Politics. Tom Murphy is the anchor of CBC Nova Scotia News and is The National's correspondent for the Maritimes. Ian Hanomansing anchors his namesake programme on CBC News Network, nightly from Vancouver. Rex Murphy has been a household name for decades, and his weekly commentaries on The National have established him as a leader in opinion and political insight. And finally, Mark Critch, star of This Hour Has 22 Minutes, whose biting impressions of Donald Trump and other newsmakers have themselves joined the news cycle.

The evening will be held at the Homburg Theatre at the Confederation Centre of the Arts, and introduced by CBC P.E.I.'s Bruce Rainnie.
