Sgt Eric Gordon at NAB Networking Party

G-Day Frank

It was great chatting with you the other day and thanks for taking interest in the Canadian Armed Forces ''Army News''.

Check out our web site at

We have been in production since 2003 and have been growing ever since. We train our soldiers in-house on a course that last about 8 weeks. Below is a brief detail of what we are all about.

Army News is part of Army Multimedia whose role is to provide reliable and accurate internal information to Canadian soldiers and the Army chain of command using traditional and emerging technologies.

Some of Army Multimedia's main tasks are to gather news about and for soldiers, update the Army website daily and produce and distribute two bilingual Army News video episodes weekly as well as special programming as required.

In carrying out these functions under the leadership of the Director Army Public Affairs, Army Multimedia supports the Army by helping shape Army culture, informing our internal audience and connecting with Canadians.

Eleven Army News field teams of soldier-reporters and CF image technicians, supported by public affairs officers, gather news throughout the Army for Army Multimedia.

Army News teams are located in Halifax, Gagetown, Valcartier, Ottawa, Petawawa, Toronto, Shilo, Wainwright and Edmonton. Several Reserve Army News teams are also located across Canada.

Again it was nice meeting you and hope to meet again sometime.


Sgt Eric Gordon
