About Anna Maria Termonti

Until very recently, listeners from around the world were privileged to listen to Anna Maria Tremonti’s compelling interviews each & every day on Canada’s most popular radio program, “The Current”. She has the gift of tackling everything from the politics of the day, to the changes that affect our society, to the stories of individuals whose personal journeys and traumas affect us all. Without a doubt, every dedicated listener has been consistently moved and inspired by Anna Maria’s genuine approach to interviewing.

A masterful storyteller, Tremonti delivers talks that touch the human spirit and captivate audiences.

After 17 years at the helm and as a two-time Gemini Award winner, now Anna Maria is taking a leap into the world of digital communication with a new way of telling stories and sharing ideas, through original podcasts that will illuminate, challenge and surprise.

Anna Maria is also a former foreign correspondent and war correspondent who spent close to a decade posted in Berlin, London, Jerusalem and Washington. Her ongoing coverage of major international stories includes the breakup of the former Soviet Union, the war in Bosnia, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the politics of the Arab world, Europe and the United States.  She also has extensive experience covering Canadian federal and provincial politics.

‘She’s been a beacon of truth telling and truth seeking. Tremonti doesn't shy away from nuance and complexity but rather investigates why such complexity exists. Her brand of journalism is premised on a measured approach to truth seeking that is essential in our increasingly polarized political and social context. Tremonti’s career demonstrates her commitment to journalism and how she encourages knowledge sharing, public dialogue, and social transformation. - From the introduction to her Convocation Speech at Royal Roads University
