Shannon Sampert

Perspective & Politics Editor - Opinion

Shannon Sampert started as a volunteer radio reporter for a small radio station in Wetaskiwin, Alberta, when she was 15 years old and was hooked from that point on.

She has worked in radio, on television and for a small period of time, wrote stories and sold ads for a rodeo magazine (she still has the cowboy boots to prove it).

At the ripe old age of 32, she made the decision to get a degree, and earned her BA in political science.

Shannon enjoyed that so much, she got her MA in Communications Studies at the University of Calgary and then her PhD at the University of Alberta in Canadian politics.

She has published a number of articles on media, politics, and women -- including a collection coedited with Linda Trimble called Mediating Canadian Politics.

She continues to research media depictions of female politicians and in her free time is a dedicated mother to her two fur babies, Norman and Bruno.
