Max Wark joined the CTV News Team in November of 2011 as a videographer for CTV Kitchener.
Max came to CTV after spending three years at CKWS in Kingston, Ont. There, Max wore a number of hats; from filing stories from across southeastern Ontario to periodically sitting in the six o'clock anchor chair. While at CKWS, he had the opportunity to cover some of the biggest stories in not only the region, but the province. The sexual exploitation trial of disgraced hockey coach David Frost, provincial takeovers of two local hospitals and being the first camera on the scene at the quadruple homicide of the Shafia family in the Rideau Canal are among the highlights.
Prior to CKWS, Max worked as a general assignment videojournalist and fill-in sports anchor at TBTV in Thunder Bay, Ont. In 2007, Max had the opportunity to travel 300 kilometres northwest of Thunder Bay to a fly-in community called Eabametoong First Nation. There, he told the story of 1,500 people whose medical building was infested with mold following years of flooding. Six months after the story hit the air, Health Canada promised more resources to help Eabametoong.
In his spare time, Max can be found trying to regain his glory at the local rink or at the gym making sure he's in peak physical condition for when the next NHL general manager needs a fourth line center. This is, of course, unless he's travelling the globe.
Max attended the University of Ottawa and interned with CTV Ottawa. He graduated from the Television Broadcasting program at Algonquin College.
