Lizza's reporting made headlines this summer when then-White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, a.k.a "The Mooch," made a profane-laden call to him, demanding to know who was leaking information to the press. Lizza will be in a conversation with Piya Chattopadhyay, host of the CBC Radio's Out in the Open.
"Ryan Lizza is on the frontlines of trying to navigate the new realities for journalists covering an unconventional president, in a world in which journalism, commentary and distrust are at the fore," says Chattopadhyay. "I look forward to talking with Ryan about how he cuts through all the noise in his increasingly divided country."
Lizza has covered the last four presidential campaigns, profiled a number of powerful political figures and brings deep understanding to the most unsettling year of a U.S. presidency.
This event is part of the annual J-Talks series that explores pressing media issues.
The CJF thanks the generosity of J-Talks series sponsor BMO Financial Group and in-kind supporters Cision and CPAC.
