In­spir­ing reads for new­shounds

Broad­cast jour­nal­ist Evan Solomon makes his re­turn to TV this month as the new host of CTV’s Ques­tion Pe­riod

North Toronto Post - - Arts -

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.”
