Dave Brindle is the newest member of the Peak’s editorial staff, and is responsible for reporting on community events, human interest, education and health.
He has enjoyed a long career in the news media, primarily in private and public broadcasting.
Brindle started out as a radio and TV sports reporter in his hometown of Regina, Saskatchewan. He was with CBC Radio and TV in Calgary, Alberta for 15 years where he gained a national profile as a network anchor and host for CBC’s original cable news network, Newsworld.
In 1999, Brindle moved to Vancouver where he obtained his B.A., with a double major in English Literature and Religious Studies at the University of British Columbia. After graduating he returned to broadcasting, producing and hosting the popular radio talk show, Dave Brindle Show on Talk 1410.
In 2010, like so many Powell River newcomers, he moved here on a whim and stayed. “Why would I want to be anywhere else?” said Brindle.
“I’m really excited to be returning to the news business with the Peak,” said Brindle. “I look forward to writing stories about our community that make this place so special for all of us who are lucky enough to live here.”
