Earlier this year, the award-winning journalist retired from his post as president of CTV News and Current affairs after 38 years in the industry. Hurst began his broadcast career as a writer for Canada AM in 1973. He was promoted to news director of Toronto's CFTO affiliate at the ripe old age of 26. Over his career, Hurst has worked in many different position, including as a foreign correspondent in Washington, Moscow and Beijing.
