Stephen Kimber

On this, episode 89 of Examineradio, we speak with long-time Halifax journalist and journalism professor Stephen Kimber. Over a wide-ranging interview, we look at the very real possibility that Halifax could become the largest city in Canada without a daily newspaper of record.

Also, Halifax’s White Elephant has its opening date pushed back yet again, throwing dozens of conventions into chaos. This week also saw the city’s 12th homicide of 2016, and we wait to see if the newly-elected council’s commitment to a living wage ordinance has any teeth.

Finally, if you’re a regular user of TuneIn for podcasts, radio shows and radio streams, Examineradio is now available to stream there.

  1. Yeah, but one of the problems with this future scenario is the silo or filter bubble. Where people just talk to friends with like minds. Rebel media has a huuuuuge following. That bugs me more than ads in the newspaper where the connecting threads at least can be teased out.

  2. Will we see the Irving group take an equity position at the Herald before December 31, and any estimate as to the possibility of Irving taking a majority position ?
    It is inevitable.

  3. Hate the jumpy synth pop music. I suffer from mental illness and it really drives me away. I can’t focus or listen properly. Thanks for your consideration. Love it other than that.

    1. Also, when I posted my comment, examineradio turned off! And now it seems I have to restart the whole episode.
