Broadcaster / Journalist
Laurie is a passionate advocate for the arts and artists in Canada. She has built a reputation as an accomplished interviewer and seasoned broadcaster by bringing out the best in Canadian artists.
Laurie is the host of The Signal, a late night music show on CBC Radio 2. Taking the best from the worlds of contemporary, jazz and post rock, she pilots an atmospheric ride out to the edges of new music, six nights a week.
Previously at CBC television, Laurie hosted CBC Newsworld's lively arts and entertainment series On The Arts With Laurie Brown. Also Senior Arts Correspondent for CBC News, Laurie covered the arts for CBC since 1990 when she joined The Journal. Before that, she was co-host and associate producer of CityTV's The New Music and a VJ for MUCHMUSIC.
Author of Success Without College - Days and Nights in Rock ‘n Roll Television, published by Penguin Books, Laurie is now avoiding completing her second book, a novel.
Laurie was invited by Cape Farewell to participate in The Carbon 14 Workshop (November 2011). For Carbon 14: Climate is Culture Laurie has conceived of a provocative and bold new work of live theatre - The Trial of David Suzuki - a mock trial to be held at the ROM and decided in the court of public opinion.
