Tetsuro Shigematsu Broadcaster, Reality TV star, PhD Candidate

Tetsuro Shigematsu is a cultural critic, broadcaster, scholar and theatre artist. His voice is familiar to millions of Canadians thanks to his years as the irreverent national host of "The Roundup" on CBC Radio One. He also worked as a nationally syndicated CBC radio columnist for which he won two RTNDA Awards for best commentary.

On TV, you can watch him talk smack as the notorious samurai-in-residence for MTV/Spike’s most watched reality series "The Deadliest Warrior." As a creator, Tetsuro's personal body of work in film, television, radio and YouTube continues to be taught in universities in Canada and the U.S. as examples of cultural possibility. A former writer for "This Hour Has 22 Minutes," Tetsuro is a Vanier scholar, and a PhD candidate at the University of British Columbia.
