Wendy Mesley

Wendy Mesley (born January 8, 1957 in Montreal, Quebec) is a host and reporter for CBC Television's consumer investigation series "Marketplace". She is also a frequent back-up anchor for CBC's flagship evening news program "The National". She also co-hosts "Test the Nation" with Brent Bambury.

In 2001 and 2002 she co-hosted the investigative newsmagazine "" with Diana Swain, and previously hosted the media and technology series "Undercurrents" from 1994 until 2001.

In 1989, Mesley married CBC news anchor Peter Mansbridge, but the marriage fell apart in 1992. She remarried on April 17, 1998 to marketing executive Liam McQuade and has one daughter with him, Kate Rae McQuade. [There's something about Wendy. "Chatelaine". May 1999.]

In January 2005, Mesley announced that she had found a lump in her left breast and had been diagnosed with breast cancer. [ [http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2005/01/07/mesley050107.html Wendy Mesley diagnosed with breast cancer] CBC News. 07 Jan 2005. Retrieved 10 Nov 2006.]

After undergoing treatment, including two lumpectomies, chemotherapy and radiation, Mesley's prognosis is excellent. As of March 2006, Mesley had returned to the CBC full-time, but was under the care of an oncologist and had been taking the intravenous, anti-cancer drug Herceptin.

Retrieved 10 Nov 2006.] That same month her documentary "Chasing the Cancer Answer" was aired. Though generally well-received, it did engender negative comment from Margaret Wente.
