Shaye Ganam teams up with Erin Chalmers to head up the Morning News on Global Edmonton, our city’s most-watched morning newscast. Together they return later in the day to anchor the Noon News Hour.
Shaye has called Edmonton home since the day he was born. He attended both the University of Alberta and NAIT. His first job in broadcasting was in Swift Current, Saskatchewan, where he did everything you can do in a TV station.
Since September of 1998, Shaye has been an integral part of Global Edmonton’s news team.
Shaye and his wife, Trish, are busy with their two children and their two dogs: Ozzy the labradoodle and Hugo the whoodle.
There are two main passions in his life outside the studio. He’s a classical guitarist, and taught guitar for many years while in college. And he loves hockey; he’s played all his life, and now coaches his son’s peewee team.
Shaye feels very fortunate to live in Edmonton and be in a position to improve his hometown. He has long-standing relationships with several charities, and recently joined the board of directors for Crime Stoppers, Edmonton and Northern Alberta.
Shaye recently debuted a new series called GameChangers that profiles people, projects or businesses that have changed the face of Edmonton and whose influence extends well beyond the city limits.
