Robert Bowman (journalist)
Robert Bowman was a broadcast journalist for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). He was the son of Charles A. Bowman, editor of the Ottawa Citizen newspaper, and a member of the Aird Commission that recommended Canada have a public broadcasting system.
On the Dieppe Raid of 19 August 1942 - the bloodiest single day of the war for Canada - he was attached to the Canadian troops, and broadcast on Canadian radio the next day. In a 1984 radio interview he explained some of the challenges of the time.
