About Michael:

Michael Enright's rich, varied and celebrated journalistic career has spanned 50 years, during which he has held key positions in Canadian media. He has hosted many of CBC Radio's flagship programs; This Country in the Morning, As It Happens, This Morning and currently, The Sunday Edition. He was managing editor of CBC Radio News, and held editorial positions with publications such as Time and Quest magazines. At Maclean's, he oversaw the magazine's shift from a monthly to a weekly publication. He was a political writer for The Toronto Star and Washington correspondent for The Globe and Mail. He received a Southam Fellowship for Journalism in 1979, and studied Chinese history. In 2012, he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from York University, and the Order of Canada. In 2014, he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from Memorial University in Newfoundland.
At CBC Radio, Michael is the senior broadcast journalist chosen to host news specials on events such as 9/11, the Gulf War, the war in Afghanistan, the Quebec referendum, Canadian and U.S. elections. He travelled to Israel as it marked the 50th anniversary of the creation of the state, and to Ireland to report on the Referendum.
Michael's fiercely intelligent broadcasting style is characterized by in-depth research, wide-ranging personal experience and a passion for justice. He is controversial and fearless (asking Radovan Karadzic "How's the ethnic cleansing coming?"). His impish sense of humour brought us his unforgettable April Fool's interviews with "Jimmy Carter" ("washed-up peanut farmer") and "Mitt Romney" ("But what about the dog on the roof of your car?") His passions include prison reform, medical pain relief and organ transplants, horseback and motorcycle riding, classical music, and advocating on behalf of the intellectually disabled.
