Rahul Kalvapallé

National Online Journalist

Rahul grew up in India, Dubai and Kuwait before moving to Canada as an international student. After getting a degree in psychology, he worked in a neuroscience research lab for a year before deciding to revisit his childhood dream of becoming a journalist.

Rahul earned a Master’s degree in journalism from Ryerson University, going on to work as a researcher for Discovery Channel Canada and as a consumer insights writer at Trendhunter.com. He then freelanced for a year before joining the Global News team in late 2016. 

When he’s not covering national and international breaking news for Global, Rahul writes about his beloved soccer team Real Madrid for Spain-based sports website Marca. He also enjoys making music, going to concerts, cooking, traveling, scuba diving and drinking craft beer, and is an incurable podcast addict.

Rahul has published in Motherboard (VICE), This, NOW, Toronto Standard, Daily Hive, Outside, Bleacher Report and numerous other publications.
