Anne Brodie's film career has its roots in small-town Ontario. As a youngster, she faithfully attended the local Roxy Theatre to see the two films shown each week. She rose from bed to watch midnight movies while the family slept and  she has kept detailed movie journals ever since. Brodie minored in film at Trinity College, Toronto and has covered the art form uninterrupted as a TV, online and radio reporter, reviewer, interviewer, entertainment news writer and critic. Brodie has interviewed tens of thousands of filmmakers and regularly travels the international film festival circuit.  Her work has appeared on What She Said! Talk (six years), CTV News Toronto (26 years), CTV News Channel, Global News, Global News Documentaries, Hollywood Suite and other TV outlets, as well as Ask Men, AOL Moviefone, Criticize This! Elle Canada, House and Home, Metro News Toronto, Monsters and Critics, More and MSN. Brodie  appears as a contributing guest in various documentaries and news items. Brodie  has extensive experience as a producer and videographer, but she cannot edit. Don’t ask her. Brodie is a founding Canadian member of the Broadcast Film Critics’ Association, and the Broadcast Television Journalists’ Association, Critics’ Choice Association, Toronto Film Critics’ Association, and FIPRESCI (International Federation of Film Critics).

Anne's currently hard at work on the Canadian multi-platform radio show What She Said, conceived by Kate Wheeler and Christine Bentley and hosted by Candace Sampson. You can

find us at and on the air in Ontario at 105.9 The Region in

What She Said is a lively mix of commentary, health, wellness, children, education, entertainment and much more, aimed at women 35+ - but we love everyone including the northern

Ontario trucker who follows us faithfully!

My Story

Anne Brodie has the wealth of knowledge that frequently makes celebrities' jaws drop. But it’s not only about the “stars” - she knows the directors, producers and filmmakers -   - she is at ease interviewing everyone – No “fan girling” here – Anne once had Mick Jagger voice her answering machine message – I call that a major coup. The number of people in the industry who will take her call is staggering – I can’t count the number of times she has correctly picked the Oscar winners the day after she saw the movie. She’s good – really good.

As both writer and critic, Anne Brodie could pry words out of the Sphinx, make Darth Vader smile, and summarize the plot of TENET in 30 words or less. Is there anything Anne can't do? Maybe, but she's working on it.

Anne Brodie has made a long career of mining the rich vein of entertainment reportage encompassing interviews and reviews of the great, and not so great, manifestations of cinematic and television entertainment. Her keen critical capabilities accurately point out the strengths and weaknesses of the subjects she scrutinizes. Her humanity is given full rein to reveal the inner workings of Hollywood and its denizens. I can only imagine the heights from which she will examine all aspects of the entertainment milieu from Movies, TV, literature, music and all the arts!

There is no one more proficient at storytelling and the written word than Anne Brodie. I have known Anne for over two decades and her dedication is legendary. Anyone who has ever come in contact with Anne will vouch for her incredible professionalism and insightful observations. She is a wordsmith who is capable of crafting stories and print and/or on TV. I am happy to call her an honored friend.
