16×9′s Chief Correspondent Carolyn Jarvis has spent a decade reporting for Global and chasing stories across the country. After five postings with the network, from Vancouver to Ottawa, Jarvis moved to Toronto in 2011 to work with the network’s current affairs division full time.
Her work, ranging from investigative to feature reporting, has won numerous awards – including a national RTDNA award her profile of Cirque du Soleil’s casting department.
In 2011, Jarvis spent two weeks inside the polygamist community of Bountiful, BC – and gained never before seen access.
Her roots in nightly news saw Jarvis cover the 2010 Olympics from Whistler, the tragic shooting of congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords from Arizona, and the Helena Guergis political scandal from Ottawa.
Jarvis also hosted Focus: Decision Canada, a national 30-minute program devoted to the 2011 federal election, and was the western correspondent and weekend co-anchor for Global National.
Hailing from Richmond, BC, Jarvis comes from musical roots. She has a Bachelor of Music in vocal performance and has sung professionally with classical ensembles, such as Alberta’s Pro Coro.
