Journalist Knowlton Nash is dead at age 86, CBC confirms

Knowlton Nash, a veteran CBC broadcaster best known as longtime anchor of The National, is dead. He was 86.

The CBC reported Saturday that Nash had been battling Parkinson’s for some years.

Nash anchored The National from 1978 to 1988 before retiring to make way for Peter Mansbridge. Before that, Nash spent many years in the trenches as a wireservice reporter, including a stint in Vancouver from 1949 to 1951, and as a foreign correspondent.

He also made a living for many years as a freelancer working in the United States and also covering the Vietnam War.

Nash wrote several books, including Trivia Pursuit: How Showbiz Values are Corrupting the News and Prime Time at Ten: Behind-the-Camera Battles of Canadian TV Journalism.
