Born and raised in Manitoba, Amber McGuckin is proud to be from the prairies.
Before she was a year old she was grilling her parents asking “who’s that, where’s that and what’s that?” Her curiosity was a magnet to journalism.
Amber earned her bachelor’s degree in communications from the University of Winnipeg and went on to get her diploma in creative communications from Red River College.
After graduating, Amber worked in Kenora, Ontario as a reporter eventually coming back to the city to work behind the scenes at CTV Winnipeg before landing a job at Global News.
When she’s not chasing down a story, Amber spends her time with friends, snapping photos or planning her next trip.
