As co-anchor of CBC Montreal’s supper-time newscast, Andrew Chang (@AndrewChangCBC) has led Montrealers through virtually every recent major event in the city. He anchored Montreal’s 2011 federal election night special, which saw the unprecedented rise of the NDP in the province, and the resulting collapse of the Bloc Québécois; he was also the first, among local English television networks, to tell Montrealers about the assassination of mafia godfather Niccolo Rizzuto Senior. 

Before becoming an anchor, Andrew worked as one of CBC’s chief staff reporters, covering breaking news at both the local and network level: from the Dawson College shootings, to the collapse of the de la Concorde overpass in Laval, to a month-long stint on the Parti Québécois campaign bus during the 2008 provincial election. During this time, Andrew was also working as a videojournalist – interviewing the newsmakers, writing and reporting the story, shooting and editing the video, and finally presenting it all on CBC News: Montreal. With a camera over his shoulder, Andrew spent years producing both news-length and feature-length reports, from across the province. 

Now Andrew co-hosts CBC News: Montreal at 5, 5:30 and 6, every weekday evening. On weekends, it’s a different story though — he spends his time snowboarding, hiking, and indulging in one of his many other passions: music.
