Broadcast journalist Evan Solomon makes his return to TV this month as the new host of CTV’s Question Period
Question Period, a flagship political program, is one of the oldest series on television, having first been broadcast in 1967. Now in its upcoming 49th season, the Sunday morning news program has a new host: Toronto native Evan Solomon takes over for Robert Fife. The Toronto native was most recently the host of CBC’s Power and Politics. We asked Solomon to offer up his five most influential books, and it wasn’t an easy task.
“Picking five favourite books is as difficult as a government getting provinces to agree on constitutional change,” he says. “So I will go with five books that have deeply influenced me as a journalist.”
