One of BC’s most well-respected voices in political commentary is joining the Daily Hive team.
Longtime legislative journalist Rob Shaw is Daily Hive’s new political columnist. He will be contributing weekly features on the important topics affecting our readers in BC’s political landscape.
The award-winning reporter has been writing about politics in the province for the past 13 years. Most recently he joined CHEK News as its on-air Political Correspondent. But for the past seven years he was at the Vancouver Sun as the newspaper’s Legislative Bureau Chief and political columnist.
Shaw also reported for nearly a decade at the Victoria Times Colonist. He is a regular political commentator on CBC Radio and a contributor at The Orca.
As Daily Hive’s Political Columnist, he will be tackling the biggest political stories in BC.
“Daily Hive has an amazing audience of readers across Western Canada, and particularly BC, and I’m excited to bring my political coverage to the team,” said Shaw.
“For many people just trying to live their daily lives during this pandemic, BC politics can seem complicated and irrelevant. But it’s the source of so many important decisions that shape our province. I’ll break down what you really need to know, why you should care and how it will impact your life.”
Shaw is also the co-author of the national bestselling book “A Matter of Confidence: The Inside Story of the Political Battle for BC,” which details the rise and fall of Christy Clark’s BC Liberals and the return of power to the NDP.
We are so excited to have Rob bring his expertise and knowledge to our readers. His regular columns will start next week.
