Digital Broadcast Journalist
Allison Bamford joined the Global Regina team in November 2017. She started as the producer for Global News Morning, but, after a little over a year, she got tired of the 4 a.m. wake-up calls and jumped ship to dayside reporting. So far, she’s loving the normal hours!
Born and raised in Saskatchewan, Allison grew up in Assiniboia before making the move to Regina for post-secondary in 2013. After an undeclared first two years of university, Allison decided on a degree in journalism, graduating from the University of Regina School of Journalism in Spring 2017.
Allison interned at CTV Saskatoon for four months before graduating. Following convocation, she moved to Prince Albert, the “Gateway to the North,” for a brief reporting stint with CTV. There, she covered everything from court to crime to sports. Although she loved the beauty of the north, she couldn’t escape her southern Saskatchewan roots and moved back to Regina six months later. Her mom couldn’t be happier.
Like her Twitter bio says, Allison “shamelessly loves curling, corgis and Taylor Swift.” So, when she’s not reporting, she’s probably cheering on Rachel Homan or Jennifer Jones, looking at cute dog videos on Instagram or obsessing over the latest T-Swift single. On the off chance she leaves her apartment, you might find her spinning at Wheelhouse Cycle Club, sipping cider on a patio or playing rec volleyball with team ‘Soft Serve.’
