James Fitz-Morris covers national politics for CBC radio's parliamentary bureau.
Fitz-Morris's career began at a small, private radio station in Montreal, where he covered the ice storm of 1998 and spent several nights sleeping on the floor of that station, to maintain 24-hour coverage, as it was the only English news station still operating during the storm.
After stints working for CBC Radio in Montreal and Quebec City, Fitz-Morris made the move to Ottawa in 1999, where he became the bureau chief for two private radio stations based in Toronto and Montreal.
In 2005, Fitz-Morris accepted an opportunity to work for a daily newspaper in Beirut, Lebanon. While there, he reported for CBC news on a series of political assassinations and bombings that ultimately led to a revolution and major political and social upheaval in that country.
In 2006, Fitz-Morris returned to Ottawa to work again on parliament hill. During his career on parliament hill, Fitz-Morris has covered three prime ministers, eight leaders of the official opposition and innumerable election threats.
When not laying bets on the next election date, Fitz-Morris is busy reading excerpts of Hansard to his two young sons.
