Susan Lunn

Susan Lunn is CBC Radio's national reporter in the parliamentary bureau in Ottawa.

Susan Lunn's first job in journalism was with her hometown newspaper, the Halifax Chronicle Herald. For two years, she learned how to cover spot news, write a feature story, and even take pictures (although some former colleagues may disagree). From there, like many Maritimers before her, she felt the call of the bright lights of Toronto.

After finishing an English degree at the University of King's College, she enrolled in the two-year journalism program at Ryerson. Jobs were scarce in 1990, until the Gulf War broke out. In November of that year, CBC National Radio News hired Lunn to work as an editorial assistant. She thanks Saddam Hussein for her start in radio.

From there, Lunn has worked all over the country for CBC Radio, including Halifax, Sudbury, Saskatoon, Regina, Toronto, and now Ottawa. She has covered breaking news such as the cryptosporidium outbreak in North Battleford, Saskatchewan and provincial politics, including Roy Romanow's minority government.

Today, Lunn calls Ottawa home, covering federal politics in the CBC Radio parliamentary bureau.
