Gregor Craigie, a speaker at Impact 2020 in Victoria, BC

He studied history at the University of Calgary, and Broadcast Journalism at the B.C. Institute of Technology. His first radio job was reporting for CKWX in Vancouver. In 1999 he moved to the United Kingdom where he joined the BBC World Service in London as a news announcer and producer. While in London, Gregor also reported for the American network CBS radio as well as freelancing for CBC Radio. When it got really busy he would file for all three news organizations, occasionally working twenty hours a day. 

For rest and relaxation he traveled to Europe, Africa, and Asia to work as a freelancer. Following his BBC/CBC/CBS days, Gregor returned to Canada and to the CBC exclusively. Most recently he has worked as a producer on The Current and a radio reporter in the Kootenays. Gregor and his wife Rebecca and their son Lochlan are happy to be on the island and looking forward to staying in one place for a long time to come.
