Christy Clark removes Chris Olsen from her side
Will Chris Olsen attempt to be on your side again?
After nearly a year at B.C. Liberal premier Christy Clark's side, the former CTV News reporter is out of a job.
Global News reports the premier's office has confirmed the former host of the Olsen on Your Side segment was let go.
Global quotes this statement:
As part of a restructuring in the premier's office, the position of a Vancouver-based press secretary has been eliminated.
Effective immediately, all media enquiries should be directed to Shane Mills.
We thank Chris Olsen for his service over the past year and wish him well in his future endeavours.
It remains to be seen if Olsen will bounce back from political spin doctoring to journalism, furthering public cynicism about the media-political complex (the career moves of Bridgette Anderson, Belle Puri, and Jehnifer Benoit also come to mind) in B.C.
