Turning Point with Priya Sam


We are thrilled to partner with alumna Priya Sam (Broadcast Journalism ’06) on the second season of her innovative podcast and YouTube show – Turning Point.

In each episode, Priya interviews a guest about a major turning point in their life. The turning points are as diverse as the guests; some stem from big decisions or taking a leap of faith, while others are rooted in tragedy or unexpected obstacles. All are inspiring. Throughout this season, Priya will interview three influential Fanshawe College Alumni.

About Priya Sam

Before starting Turning Point, Priya was the news anchor on CTV's national morning show, Your Morning, alongside Ben Mulroney and Anne-Marie Mediwake. Before that she was the news anchor for CTV Morning Live Atlantic broadcast out of Halifax.

You likely recognize alumna Cheryl Hickey (Broadcast Journalism ’96) from ET Canada. She has been hosting the show since it launched in 2005 and in this first episode of Turning Point season two, you'll find out how late nights spent learning to do camera work and editing eventually lead to Cheryl getting her big break.
