Amber Fryday
Digital Broadcast Journalist

Amber Fryday joined the Global News team in 2021. She grew up in the beautiful seaside town of Hubbards, N.S. and attended Saint Mary’s University where she studied Anthropology and Languages.

Since she could talk, Amber has been enthralled with people and their stories. She knew she wanted to be able to connect with her community on a broader scale and so she decided to enroll in the Radio, Television, Journalism program at Nova Scotia Community College.

Inspired by Oprah Winfrey and her ability to connect with her audience and tell people-focused stories, Amber is driven to give a voice to the voiceless and interact with people from all walks of life.

She loves covering stories pertaining to social justice issues and telling stories of those in racialized communities.  When Amber is not working, she is an avid traveller and active member of the community. She has spent years volunteering with organizations such as Girl Guides of Canada, SHINE Academics, Hope Blooms and the Prescott Group. She has also volunteered as an emcee at live local events, ‘Halifax For Ukraine’ and a ‘Black Lives Matter’ rally.

She is the current Atlantic director of the Canadian Association of Black Journalists and the vice-president of the Nova Scotia Mass Choir.
