In January 2024, the City of Thunder Bay launched its first podcast, aiming to improve communication with the public, connect with the community and provide another way to share city information.

‘The Minutes’ offer an in-depth look at the decisions made following each Committee of the Whole and City Council meeting. Hosted by City Communications Officer Jeff Walters, the weekly show provides a brief recap of the weekly council meeting and conversations with municipal leaders and staff, providing detailed insights and perspectives beyond traditional news coverage.

To listen to The Minutes anytime, download on any podcast app. Video versions with closed captioning are available on the City's YouTube channel.

Prior to joining the City of Thunder Bay as a Communications Officer, Jeff worked as a journalist for CBC Thunder Bay for nearly 15 years. During his tenure at CBC, Jeff extensively covered City Council and municipal politics across northwestern Ontario, and also hosted the morning and afternoon shows for Northern Ontario. Hosting The Minutes allows Jeff to continue to closely follow what happens in our community, without having to wake up at 4 a.m.
