Ines de La Cuetara
Ines de La Cuetara brings her comprehensive experience in political reporting to her role as Global National’s Washington Correspondent.
Prior to joining Global News, de La Cuetara worked at ABC News as the network’s embedded reporter covering Florida Senator Marco Rubio’s once-promising presidential bid and Vice-President Mike Pence.
While with ABC, she covered several notable political and world events including the 2016 election where she reported from 43 states across the country. She also covered the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando, the worst terror attack on U.S. soil since 9/11.
In late 2016, she was one of the few reporters aboard Trump Force 2, as it skidded off the runway at LaGuardia airport. She broke news of prominent Republican donors considering donating to Hillary Clinton, was the first reporter to ask Ted Cruz about his speech at the Republican National Convention and even attended jury duty with President Donald Trump during his campaign run.
Previous to her role covering American politics, de La Cuetara worked as Global News Montreal’s first video-journalist, where her work was nominated for an RTDNA Adrienne Clarkson Award. She worked in production for CNN’s Paris Bureau in 2012 and ABC’s World News Tonight in 2013.
Born in Nice, France, de La Cuetara travelled all over Europe before settling in North America. She holds a B.A. in Political Science from McGill University and a Master’s degree in broadcast journalism from Columbia University.
