Competing for Team Canada at tennis tournaments around the world turned Shannon Cuciz into a storyteller. When she wasn’t playing she was exploring new cities, writing about the people she met and cultural experiences she shared with them.
Deciding to pursue journalism, Cuciz moved from Vancouver to study broadcasting in Toronto at Ryerson University then language at Konstanz University in Germany. Next, she moved to Prince Albert, Saskatchewan as a video journalist where her knack for original storytelling was noticed. Cuciz eventually joined the Global News team as a reporter and anchor in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
She has covered the FIFA Women’s World Cup, Manitoba wildfires and tornadoes as well as emergency evacuations in Shoal Lake 40 First Nation for Global’s investigative 16×9 series. Memorable moments also include interviewing Canadian music legend Tom Cochrane at the NHL Heritage Classic and jumping out of a plane with the Canadian Forces SkyHawks.
At 24, Cuciz became the host of Global News Morning in Winnipeg, making her one of the youngest news anchors in Canada. She launched an adventure series called Out of the House, which encourages people to try outdoor activities in their own city, along with a food series Recipe Reveal featuring the best meals Manitoba has to offer.
This Canadian-Italian is passionate about sharing inspiring stories and hopes you’ll join her to start off your day!
