Has Linden MacIntyre Found His Fifth Estate Replacement?
submit to reddit

Last week, journalist and author Linden MacIntyre made headlines when he announced he'd be leaving The Fifth Estate, the show he's co-hosted since 1990. MacIntyre said he would be retiring, partly because he wanted to step aside so that younger journalists could take his place at the CBC.

MacIntyre has been a frequent guest on the show, but when he was here a few years ago he ran into one of those younger "journalists," a writer on The Hour (who, it turns out, really wanted a gig on The Fifth Estate). In the video above, you'll see what happened when they met in the show's kitchen.
