Jill Krop

Anchor

I couldn’t ask for a better job or a better bunch of people to work with, says Jill Krop.

Jill started her career, like a lot of fellow B.C. broadcasters, at CKPG in Prince George. Then it was onto Regina, to be the first anchor at the brand new STV. She then spent just over a year in Saskatchewan before heading east – to the Maritimes.

Jill spent the next six years at ASN (the Atlantic Satellite Network) in Halifax hosting everything from major newscasts to the incredibly popular morning show, Breakfast Television.

Over the years, Jill has had some amazing experiences in a number of cities, and is glad to have worked right across this Canada. She delighted in returning to B.C. and is proud to be working at a topnotch newsroom here at Global BC.

In addition to loving her job, Jill also found a new passion in travelling around the world. She is happiest when wandering the world with her backpack and a Lonely Planet travel guide. She has been to Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Australia, China, Mexico, Guatemala and Belize in the past few years and hopes to continue her travels … next destination: unknown!
