Daintre Christensen is the traffic anchor and co-host for Edmonton’s #1 morning newscast, the Morning News on Global Edmonton.
Daintre’s television broadcast career started as a reporter in the Global 1 helicopter, where she filed traffic reports for the Morning News, the Early News and Corus radio. She also covered breaking news events for the News Hour on Global Edmonton, live from Global 1. Prior to that, she worked on the ground behind the microphone at CISN Country 103.9 FM.
Daintre was born in North Bay, Ontario. She and her family moved to Edmonton in 1986, and then to Fort Saskatchewan, where she currently resides.
The self-proclaimed “Canadian history nut” married on July 1, 2005 at the McKay Avenue School in downtown Edmonton. The building is Edmonton’s oldest brick schoolhouse, which also housed the first two sessions of the Alberta Legislature in 1906 and 1907.
Daintre has a deep love for animals. She has volunteered at the Edmonton Wildlife Rehab Society, taking calls and collecting injured animals from concerned citizens. She is also environmentally conscious, participating in shoreline cleanups and tree planting.
Outside of the Global Edmonton studios, Daintre enjoys dancing, martial arts, and believe it or not – target shooting!
