Aaron McArthur

Aaron joined Global BC in 2001 as a Reporter. 

He began his journalism career at a local television station, then known as UTV, and then moved Global Saskatoon as the weekend anchor and reporter and then Global Regina as the late-night anchor. 

A graduate of the University of Victoria with a major in political science and a minor in history, he also graduated from BCIT’s broadcast journalism program.  

From an early age, Aaron knew he wanted to work at Global News (then called BCTV). Growing up in Fernie, B.C., the television in the McArthur household was always on and always tuned to Global.   

Aaron and his wife, former Global BC reporter Elaine Yong, are passionate supporters of organ donation awareness and the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. At less than a month old, their daughter Addison was the first baby to receive a heart transplant at BC Children’s Hospital. 

When he is not working, you can find Aaron spinning his wheels on his bike or travelling around the world. Some of his favourite destinations include Hong Kong, Italy and Antarctica. But mostly, he loves spending time with his two children.
