Anchor/Morning Show Host
Aalia Adam is the co-host and anchor of Global News Weekend as well as a video journalist for Global News’ online original content team.
Born and raised in Montreal, she first discovered her passion for storytelling at 16 years old when she travelled to southern Africa and was inspired to create a documentary on HIV-AIDS.
By 17, she was already interning at Global Montreal and got hired as a reporter just shy of completing her journalism degree at Concordia University in 2012.
Looking to diversify her experience, she briefly departed from her Global News family. She spent a year waking up at the crack of dawn to report on live breaking news for Breakfast Television Montreal and then went on to work as a reporter for CTV Montreal.
After moving to Toronto, she reunited with Global News.
In her free time, Aalia loves to travel, take improv classes at Second City and work on her YouTube series, Seriously Gluten-Free, which features restaurants around Canada that accommodate people with celiac disease and gluten sensitivities.
