Jennifer Tryon

Global National Senior Investigative Correspondent

Award-winning journalist Jennifer Tryon is Global National‘s senior investigative correspondent.  She is excited to be able to dive into a subject, investigate and expose issues closest to the hearts of Canadians.

Jennifer has worked in newsrooms in Kingston, Ottawa, Kitchener and Montreal breaking major stories across the country.

She worked her way up as a news intern during her early years in journalism and shot, edited, and even ran her own teleprompter on the anchor desk. She started out at the Kingston Whig-Standard, before moving on to television at CKWS-TV in Kingston. She has also worked at CTV in Ottawa and Montreal over the years, including a stint at CTV’s national specialty unit before joining Global National.

Now, investigative stories and original journalism are her specialties. Exclusivity is the key and focus of Jennifer’s stories, a mandate in which she lives by.

Over the past several months, Jennifer has broken several stories, including how some Canadians are having to pay hundreds of dollars to access Health Canada’s medical marijuana program.  She also discovered the doomed shopping centre in Elliot Lake, Ontario contained asbestos, which raised health and safety questions about dust in the air following the building’s collapse.

Jennifer has received many investigative journalism honours from the Canadian Association of Journalists, as well as an award from Amnesty International for Excellence in Human Rights Reporting.

This past September, the Canadian Medical Association bestowed her with the 2012 award for Excellence in Emerging Health Care Issue for her series of reports on the housing crisis in Attawapiskat, Ontario.

Jennifer’s interests include snowboarding, mountain biking, cooking and carpentry.

She was born in Kingston, Ontario and now lives in Toronto with her husband and their three children.
