Hosts

  • Jennifer Crosby Jennifer Crosby Jennifer Crosby is a veteran communicator and journalist. She brings extensive interviewing and live news experience to the anchor desk, using keen editorial insight to further the conversation around the day’s biggest stories. Add quick wit, warmth, and cohost Vinesh Pratap – and you have Global News at Noon: a new style of broadcast that digs deeper into the issues that define us. As a broadcaster, Jennifer has conducted exclusive one-on-one interviews with current and former Prime Ministers, covered numerous elections live as history is decided, and adlibbed through countless stories breaking on air. That experience showed as she delivered up-to-the moment province-wide results during Election Night 2019, and outlined the races in real-time using Global’s award-winning virtual technology. Her work also introduced viewers to Alberta’s political leaders like we’ve never seen them before during Global News Kitchen Party, a unique combination of cooking and conversation. Her contributions cover the Corus network, from radio interviews and online articles, to her strong and engaged social media following. Past work includes “Parenting in Politics,” a series on the first Alberta MLAs to deliver babies while in office that provided viewers with rare insight into the personal juggles faced by pioneering public figures. Jennifer has also reported from inside the Fort Saskatchewan Correctional Centre’s Tri-centre during a special series on education behind bars, conducted an exclusive interview with Kevin Costner onboard a private jet, and hosted and produced an innovative primetime special on the local food movement – long before “local” was a catch-phrase. One of Jennifer’s passions is writing, and her written work has appeared in a number of publications including the Edmonton Journal, and The Tomato Food and Drink. A frequent emcee at some of our City’s favorite events, Jennifer has loaned her talents to the United Way’s Red Tie Gala, the 1000 Women annual fundraising luncheon, the World Partnership Walk, and Boys & Girls Clubs Big Brothers Big Sisters. Prior to joining the Global Edmonton team Jennifer anchored the flagship evening news from BC’s capital, Victoria, hosting numerous live marquee events like the Victoria Day and Santa’s Light parades. Earlier postings took her to Northern BC as a videographer, morning radio anchor, and host of a TV current affairs program. She credits her work on “To the Point, with Jennifer Crosby” with honing her interviewing and adlibbing skills. Jennifer is the recipient of a Visionaries Under 40 award for media and publishing. She holds a diploma in Broadcast Journalism from BCIT and a Bachelors of Anthropology with Distinction from the University of Victoria.
