Description

DIANA BISHOP spent twenty years as a national and international TV news correspondent for CBC, CTV, Global Television, and NBC News telling stories of some of the biggest newsmakers of the day. Since 2003, Diana has been running a unique communications and personal branding business called The Success Story Program™ working with individuals from executives, entrepreneurs to politicians, heart surgeons and ballet dances to tell their stories, grow their brands and become the leaders and trailblazers in their field or industry.

Now after all the years of telling other people’s stories Diana has written her own, a deeply personal memoir called Living Up To A Legend, My Adventures With Billy Bishop’s Ghost --- which explores the profound impact that her famous grandfather, World War One flying ace, one of Canada’s greatest war heroes has had on her life.

On this year, the 100th anniversary of her grandfather receiving the Victoria Cross, once the highest honour bestowed for bravery, Diana reflects on the culture of heroism and the role it plays in all of our lives.

In her more than 20 years as a TV news correspondent, Diana Bishop had a journalism interviewing presidents and prime ministers, covering major national and international news events, specializing in the internal workings of Canadian politics and foreign policy over. Since 2003, she has run a unique communications and personal branding business called The Success Story Program™ working with some of Canada’s top talent from executives and entrepreneurs to ballet dancers and beauty pageant contestants.

When Diana was posted as Beijing Bureau Chief, she made history as CTV's first full-time female foreign correspondent. Then NBC News came knocking and Diana spent an additional year in China rebuilding the NBC News bureau and running Asia coverage for Nightly News with Tom Brokaw, Weekend Nightly, the Today Show and Meet the Press.

Diana returned as a Senior Parliamentary Correspondent first for CTV News in Ottawa and then moved to Global Television where she also produced several documentaries. In 2002, Diana produced a one-hour documentary entitled A Hero To Me exploring the legacy of her famous grandfather and Canadian icon World War One flying ace Billy Bishop.
