Who is Robin Rowland?
I'm a Kitmat, B.C. -based independent visual journalist and author. I freelance as a photographer, writer, journalist, television producer and web/multimedia producer, serving northwestern British Columbia and the rest of the world.
Until March 2010, when I took early retirement, I worked for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's news division as the Photo Editor for CBC News and a producer for the news website CBC.news.ca.
From April 1998 until April 2007, I also worked as a producer of "The National" website. Before I joined the National, I was a writer/producer with CBC.ca's predecessor CBC Newsworld Online, the CBC's headline news service on the Internet. From 1994 to 1996, I was a lineup editor for CBC Newsworld News hourlies on the weekends and wrote for other CBC News shows.
I worked for CTV News from 1988 to 1994. From 1982 to 1984 I worked for the CBC's pioneering new media experiment, Project Iris, which involved sending to news out through the then primitive teletext system.
From 1995 until 2001, I taught Computer-Assisted Reporting and Investigative Techniques at the Ryerson Polytechnic University School of Journalism.
My current writing blog is Robin's Weir.
