Tamara Cherry is a trauma researcher, victim advocate, and communications consultant who spent the bulk of her career as an award-winning journalist in some of Canada’s largest newsrooms. She left her post as CTV News Toronto’s crime specialist in 2019 to launch Pickup Communications, a public relations firm that specializes in supporting victims and survivors of traumatic events, and providing communications consulting for justice-sector clients. Tamara is also the author of All the Bumpy Pebbles, a novel about domestic sex trafficking. She is now working on her second book. It’s called Unspeakable: Victims, Survivors & the Media. Part journalism, part memoir, this book is based on Tamara’s research project examining the impact of the media on trauma survivors, and the impact of trauma on journalists. Tamara is a regular voice on Newstalk 1010 radio in Toronto. She lives in Regina, Saskatchewan with her partner and their three kids.
