Journalist goes political…

We’re in an election year here in Ontario and nominations for various party candidacies are being filled. I’ve learned that come next October, PC leader Tim Hudak may have something of a star candidate in Global’s Darryl Konynenbelt.

Konynenbelt is well-known to Toronto viewers and will be seeking the PC party nomination of Mississauga South where he is raising triplets with his wife Anne-Marie Mediwake, who also works in television. Darryl’s profile page at has gone blank and he also had this announcement just last night:

Tomorrow my twitter here ends. Details to follow@ 11:30am

I’ve contacted Darryl and he’s confirmed the news. He’ll be giving a press conference at 11:30am at Snug Harbour Port Credit.
