Rosemary Barton is one of the leading political journalists in Canada. She has interviewed many prime ministers, leading politicians, and renowned personalities in the political world. And for her hard work and dedication, she has been honored with the Canadian Screen Award in 2016 as the best host in the news and information sector.
Career & Net Worth
Rosemary always dreamed of being a political reporter from a young age.
She started her career as a researcher for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's (CBC) French-language news channel RDI. Later, she joined Global News as a correspondent for the National Assembly of Quebec.
She again returned to CBC in 2004 and got the same role of a provincial political correspondent. Then, in 2007 she was selected as a national reporter for the CBC's Parliamentary bureau, covering a number of federal leadership campaigns.
After Evan Solomon was dismissed by CBC in 2015, she became the interim host of "Power & Politics." Within a year, she was officially named the new permanent host of the show in January.
She made her debut on CBC's flagship program, The National, on November 2017 as a co-host alongside Ian Hanomansing, Andrew Chang, and Adrienne Arsenault. But after some years, she transitioned her role as CBC's child political correspondent as CBC decided not to continue The National.
For her good work, she was awarded the Best Host or Interviewer in 2016, at the 4th Canadian Screen Award.
Likewise, she has been earning a significant amount of salary as a news reporter in CBC, which is expected to be around $65 per year. Along with that, she is estimated to have a net worth ranging between thousand to millions of dollars.
Secret Personal Life
Barton is the kind of person who likes to keep her personal life just to herself. And because of that, she raised curiosity among her fans regarding her partner.
However, the curiosity seems to be ending nowhere soon as she has not shed any life on her personal life. So whether she is married to a husband or is single remains a mystery.
But there is no denying that she loves to flaunt admiration for her parents in every possible interview and social posts.
She says that her mother is her inspiration and has supported her in every step of her life. Even today, she goes to her mother when she has to take some of the hard decisions.
As for her father, she credits him for introducing her to politics.
