About the Author

Maria Tremonti

Anna Maria Tremonti joins The Current after two years as a correspondent and host on CBC TV's flagship investigative program "the fifth estate". She has spent much of her career roaming the country and the world for the CBC. Between 1991 and 2000 Anna Maria filed regular news and documentary reports for CBC Television from a rotating cast of international home bases: Berlin, London, Jerusalem, and Washington. She has covered conflict and crisis in more than 30 countries, providing the CBC with eyewitness accounts of the war in Bosnia, the Arab-Israeli conflict and the break-up of the Soviet Union.

A native of Windsor, Ontario, Anna Maria’s career began in radio. She joined CBC as host of the morning radio program in Fredericton, New Brunswick, then moved to Edmonton to work as a legislative reporter. She followed this with a four year stint in the nation’s capital, pursuing political high-jinx on Parliament Hill.

For her work as a journalist Anna Maria has won two Gemini awards, and an outstanding achievement award from Toronto Women in Film and Television. She also received an honourary doctorate from the University of Windsor, the very school where she completed her undergrad. She has behind her a string of partially learned languages—French, German and Arabic—which she uses to great and mysterious effect while lounging on the decks of international ocean liners.

The Current marks a happy return to her radio roots. Anna Maria Tremonti profoundly hopes not to have to book a moving van any time soon.
