We’ve waited a long time to make this episode happen and we’re so thrilled to welcome Patricia Boal of the 6pm news on CTV Ottawa to the Tall Can Audio Studio for the first time.

We’d love it if you’d take a second to support the podcast by leaving us a rating and a review inside your podcast app. It just takes a sec and makes a huge difference to us.

So much to cover with Patricia including her days teaching our buddy Steve Lloyd the ropes, her career path through Ottawa radio to Headline Sports and theScore and on to the CTV News in Ottawa, her experiences covering the Olympics including Vancouver 2010, some of the biggest stories Patricia has dealt with since taking over the anchor seat, whether she was treated differently as a woman while covering sports, the added abuse journalists are taking online these days from people who don’t trust them, where sports meets news in a city like Ottawa and so much more.

You can catch Patricia Boal every night at 6pm on the CTV News in Ottawa.
