Bill O'Donovan

Today is a triple nomination for #Amplifriday, and no wonder why. Today’s Amplifriday spotlight is shining on the remarkable, award-winning, and iconic Bill O’Donovan who is nominated by co-workers at the Kamloops Division of Pattison Media – General Manager Leo Baggio, News Director Dave Barry, and Special Projects Assistant Doug Collins.

Bill O’Donovan is the lead news anchor and producer with CFJC television based in Kamloops. He was recently recognized with a 2023 Lifetime Achievement Award from RTDNA Canada, the voice of broadcast and digital journalists as well as news managers and leaders in Canada. In the award announcement, RTDNA noted, “O’Donovan has mentored countless young journalists throughout his career, instilling them with principles of accuracy and fairness that have helped make CFJC’s newsroom a model of journalistic integrity.” Not only has he won the respect of his industry, but the respect of his co-workers.

Leo writes: “Bill has reached a level of trust with our viewers that is kind of rarified air in the broadcast world. He’s the kind of person who does the right thing even when people aren’t looking and viewers sense that in him as a news anchor.”
Dave writes: “Bill is as respected within the journalism field as he is in our community. He has been the trusted face of Kamloops for decades. He is a quiet confident leader who is instills confidence in those around him.”
Doug writes: “Bill has stood out with his commitment to the highest level of journalistic integrity, his leadership in promoting accuracy, balance and his ability to convey those standards to those he works with.”

We were eager to amplify the remarkable impact of Bill O'Donovan last week. As a part of AmpliFriday, we donate $100 to a charity of choice for our amplified individual, and Bill chose the Kamloops Hospice, sharing,

"The staff at hospice provide compassionate end-of-life care for patients, including a former co-worker of mine. I believe their service is critical to our community."

In this beautiful home overlooking Kamloops' exceptional landscape, you might smell the aroma of freshly baked cookies. Here, the Kamloops Hospice Association is committed to serving with HEART, honesty, empathy, accountability, respectfulness and tenderness, offering solace and support when needed most.

Congratulations again, Bill, on being amplified; we are excited to support the Kamloops Hospice by making a $100 donation in your honour.
