Christa Dao joined the Global Regina team in January 2016. She is originally from the west coast, and attended the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), earning a Diploma in Broadcast Journalism.
Christa has worked in multiple newsrooms across Canada, including as an editorial assistant on CBC’s News Network show in Toronto. Prior to joining the Global news team, she worked for CFTK-TV News as a video journalist in Canada’s wettest city – Prince Rupert, BC.
Despite the rain two-thirds of the year, Christa embraced the ‘City of Rainbows’ and reported on many contentious issues in the region, including the shutdown of BC’s largest salmon canning operation, as well as various First Nations land title claims.
Christa’s insatiable desire to conquer all parts of Canada has now led her to the land of living skies. She’s a sucker for sunsets, as well as catchy click-bait headlines. When she’s not on the beat, she’s trying to catch up on that final season of Breaking Bad, which she’s attempted six times.
