Vancouver Island media personality Hudson Mack coming to Courtenay

Longtime Vancouver Island media personality Hudson Mack has a new book – and he’s coming to Courtenay on a promotional tour.

Mack’s autobiography, Hudson Mack: Unsinkable Anchor, hits bookstores next month.

For decades Hudson Mack was the face of television news on Vancouver Island. He worked at CHEK News as a senior anchor and assistant news director for 19 years before “crossing the street” to competitor The New VI. Shocking viewers and industry members alike, Mack’s move was bold and potentially career shattering. Reflecting on the decision, Mack admits even he wasn’t certain where this new path would lead. After nearly two decades leading the market, Mack left the heritage station that had dominated the ratings for the struggling New VI. This new upstart station had floundered since its launch, and for Mack it was an irresistible opportunity to rebuild and lead.

And it was true: changes were happening, but there were other factors, too. In Hudson Mack, the broadcast veteran discusses the decisions that shaped his career.

He will be at the Courtenay Public Library Oct. 6 at 7 p.m. to discuss the book, his ventures and to answer questions.
