Cathi Bond is a Canadian new media pioneer and accomplished national broadcaster. She has written for TV and covers a wide variety of material for print and new media.
Many Canadians know Cathi from CBC Radio’s DNTO, as the “Video Diva,” a wise cracking movie reviewer, who delivered smart, yet entertaining weekly content. The Video Diva brand was cross-purposed and moved over to CBC Newsworld where it ran in international syndication for years.
Cathi has also written and broadcasted for CBC Radio’s Metro Morning, Next, The Arts Tonight, and Spark.
On their bi-weekly podcast thesniffer, Cathi and her friend Nora Young discuss their latest tech and trend discoveries. True new media pioneers, Cathi and Nora are celebrating the podcast’s 10 year anniversary.
While she has an eye to the future in her journalistic work, Cathi also has a deep interest in historical fiction and has mined her own family’s past for a trilogy about Canadian life during the 20th century. Her first novel, Night Town, was published in 2013 to great critical acclaim and she is currently working on her second.
Cathi also runs a 200 acre farm. This year crops are corn and soy beans. The corn’s a bit spikey but the beans are doing great. When not on the farm, Cathi and her ferocious Schnauzer live in downtown Toronto.
