Introducing Emcee Peter Brown!
Peter’s career started after he studied at the University of Saskatchewan where he had the opportunity to do graduate work in English at the University of Cambridge. This involved long hours poring over 17th century manuscripts, and in his spare time doing comedy sketches. Those years led to both a Master’s Degree in Literature and a comedy show at the Edinburgh Fringe that was featured on BBC Radio. After returning to Canada, Peter’s became a producer and host for CBC. This is where Peter’s career took off as he got to develop his skills on multiple platforms. He got to interview Prime Ministers, premiers, scientists, artists, athletes, business leaders, and “ordinary” Edmontonians doing remarkable things. He worked hard to craft interviews that were well-researched, challenging and revealing. There were serious days too, and moments of grief and tragedy.
