Margeaux Morin is Global Edmonton’s dedicated Weather Anchor covering stories surrounding climate and environmental science weekdays on News Hour Final.
Born and raised in Edmonton, Margeaux grew up in the historic Highlands neighbourhood. For 25 years, she’s held a strong passion for dance, beginning ballet lessons at three years old. Margeaux grew up idolizing the Edmonton Eskimos Cheer Team, so in the spring of 2005, she tried out and made it on the green and gold’s squad.
While on the Esks’ Cheer Team, Margeaux had the opportunity to attend Grey Cup festivals all across Canada, and to train with other NBA, NFL & CFL dancers at training camps across North America. After four fun-filled seasons, she retired her golden pompoms and continued on for another two years as a choreographer and media appearance coach for the team.
This led the football club to ask her to co-host a Shaw TV show called The Green and Gold Gridiron Show with Chris Sheetz from CISN Country. She and Chris hosted that show for three seasons, and it was a gig that would lead Margeaux to explore working in media as a full-time career. As if she wasn’t busy enough, attending the Alberta School of Business, and working in marketing full time, Margeaux took on a new role with the Edmonton Oilers.
The Edmonton Oilers Octane Cheer Team launched in 2010, and Margeaux acted as the assistant coach and choreographer for three seasons. Longing to further her career in media, Margeaux made the move to New York City where she enrolled in a Broadcast Journalism program at the New York Film Academy. This would complement the Bachelor of Commerce degree that she later received from the University of Alberta.
Margeaux’s first full-time media gig was with the Calgary Stampede where she produced and appeared in content for the Stampede’s YouTube channel. In June of 2013, the Southern Alberta floods devastated the Calgary Stampede Park. Margeaux was one of the first videographers on-site to capture that historic event. Her content was later aired on major television networks throughout North America and caught the attention of The Weather Network, which later offered Margeaux a job as a Video Journalist covering weather events across Western Canada. Floods, blizzards and catastrophic hail events were a regular part of her beat, and soon enough, Global Edmonton had its eye on Margeaux as their newest Weather Specialist.
Margeaux currently volunteers with the Rotary Club of Edmonton, and enjoys running in Edmonton’s beautiful river valley. She also loves to travel, and recently returned from a dream trip to Europe.
