Reid is a born and raised Calgarian, and thrilled to join Global National as the Alberta correspondent.
He comes to Global National after co-anchoring the Saturday and Sunday Morning News on Global Calgary.
He began his broadcasting career at CH Red Deer as a video journalist. Reid then moved to Global Edmonton as a News Reporter before returning home to Calgary.
Some of the most poignant stories Reid has covered include the murder of an RCMP constable in the Northwest Territories in 2007. Reid was also working in Ottawa when the death of Federal NDP Leader Jack Layton was announced in August 2011.
In the spring of 2011, Reid was honoured with a regional RTNDA award for his part in co-producing and reporting the Global News special Pine Lake: 10 Years Later. The long feature told the story of survivors from one of Alberta’s most deadly tornadoes that swept through the Green Acres Campground in July 2000.
Reid is looking forward to waking up early every weekend to bring you Calgary’s most current and comprehensive local news.
