The 3rd Annual Zoomer List: Canada’s Top 45 Over 45: Steve Paikin

Steve Paikin, 52, Anchor and Senior Editor The Agenda with Steve Paikin

This fall marks the 20th anniversary for multiple Gemini-nominated Paikin as TVO’s current affairs host. But 2012 was notable for other reasons, too: he received an honorary doctorate from Laurentian University, a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal and was named the most influential Queen’s Park journalist on Twitter by public affairs consultancy and PR firm Hill + Knowlton Strategies. Paikin’s latest book – his take on 50 years of Ontario politics – is due out next year. “It’s a privilege to talk with some of the brightest people in depth five nights a week with no commercial interruptions. Canadians consistently demonstrate an appetite for this kind of depth, as evidenced by the fact that The Agenda is about to embark on its seventh season.”
