Notice biographique

Peter Antony Harsant Meggs served with the RCAF (1944-1945) and later (I951-1952) as a Flying Officer in the RCAF Reserve in Toronto. He began his marriage to Kathleen and his broadcasting career in Kirkland Lake, Ontario, in 1948, and joined CBC in Toronto the following year. During the growth of radio and TV networks in the 1950s he was named Director of the Ottawa Area of CBC. He left CBC in 1961 to study theology at Bishop’s University in Lennoxville, Québec. In 1963 he was ordained deacon and appointed Assistant Rector of St. Matthew’s Church, Ottawa, where he was ordained priest March 17, 1964. While living in Ottawa, Peter and Kathleen were members of this parish, and participated in both Jewish/Christian and Christian/Muslim Dialogues. Following parish work at St. Matthew’s, Ottawa, he was transferred in 1964 to Anglican Church headquarters in Toronto as Director of Communications. While in Toronto he served as priest at the convent of the Sisters of St. John the Divine, and assisted clergy in parishes.

At the request of CBC, he also hosted a network Radio series called Concern, on the relationship between faith and current affairs, eventually returning full-time to CBC to revamp English radio programming with Doug Ward and was named national director of English radio. In 1976, he returned to Ottawa to serve as Vice-President of Audience Relations at CBC head office and eventually back to the Ottawa Area. He retired in 1985 and spent the next five years (free-lance) writing, doing interviews for the Oral History Project of CBC Archives and hosting Open House, for the CBC Radio Network. Like Concern, Open House focused on the role of faith in everyday life. Peter Meggs passed away December 2, 2017.
