A writer, producer, reporter, anchor and host, Kris Reyes brings a passion for news and a wealth of experience to Global’s The Morning Show.
Kris began her career as a freelance producer and writer in Toronto.
Eager to make the jump to on-air, Kris moved to Winnipeg on the coldest day of 2003 to begin reporting and producing for CTV’s Winnipeg affiliate.
After a brief stint working at Global Winnipeg as their weekend anchor, Kris returned to Toronto where she spent six years as a reporter for CityTV.
During this time, Kris appeared on several CityTV programs, including Breakfast Television, CityNews at 6 and also hosted her own talk-back and social media-focused program, CityOnline.
An early adopter of social media platforms, including YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, Kris was quick to fully integrate these tools into her reporting years before it became popular for journalists to do so.
Kris left CityTV in September, 2010 and took a career break from broadcasting to spend five months travelling around Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Hawaii with her husband.
Kris was born in the Philippines and moved to Toronto with her family when she was nine. She enjoys good books, good conversation and a good cup of tea. Kris has also worked with several Filipino charities to help alleviate poverty in the Philippines.
