WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Host of CBC Radio's The Current, Anna Maria Tremonti (re Patrick Brown):
"He is one of our most brilliant journalists and it's wonderful that the Canadian Journalism Foundation is honoring him and recognizing his contribution."
CBC News investigative reporter, Diana Swain:
"It's always humbling to be in this crowd. Whether you look left, right, or straight behind you, you'll see someone who is distinguished in the world of journalism."
Host of CBC Radio's Metro Morning, Matt Galloway:
"I love seeing a lot of people whose work I love and who I would never see otherwise. It's very exciting to see people whose work you admire ... and realize they are just average people."
Veteran CBC political reporter and host, Don Newman:
"Journalism is under some pressure at the moment and to recognize excellence of people who are doing it is important.... I make a point of coming down, even when I was on TV every day I would skip my show that day or do it in Toronto so I could come to this."
