As a child, Shari Graydon wasn't allowed to watch TV on weeknights. Nor did her parents ever buy her brand name clothing. Despite these debilitating setbacks, she made the cheerleading squad, was elected to student council and had friends.
After earning a degree in Theatre, Shari worked for the world's largest public relations agency. Her job was to flog stories about fast food chains and drug companies to the news media. All she can say now is that she's sorry, and she's been trying to make up for this lamentable lapse in judgment ever since.
Shari has had experience on both sides of the microphone and camera. She produced a TV series for WTN, wrote and performed regular commentary on media issues for CBC Radio and TV, and served as the national spokesperson for MediaWatch.
