Robert Buffam

CTV News Vancouver Island Journalist

Rob joined CTV News Vancouver Island in 2014, after stints working as a reporter and anchor in Alberta and in the Okanagan. 

He considers himself to be something of a late-bloomer, having taken the proverbial long road to journalism. He previously worked as a forest firefighter based in the Cariboo-Chilcotin region, and then as a trial lawyer in Vancouver.

Rob is our B.C. legislative reporter. He enjoys covering politics and the courts. 

In his spare time, Rob plays golf poorly, runs marathons slowly and enjoys spending time with his family.
