Carole Anne Devaney

Carole Anne Devaney is co-anchor of Global News Hour at 6 on Global Edmonton and anchor for Global News at 5.

A proud French-Canadian, who was born and raised in Canada’s Capital, Carole Anne landed her first on-air gig as a student reporter with CTV Ottawa. Her experience then took her to Parliament Hill where she reported for a French political show on CPAC.

In 2008, she drove 39 hours across the country to Edmonton, after accepting a reporting position with CBC. In February 2011, Carole Anne joined the Global News team and was quickly promoted to primetime news anchor.

Carole Anne is dedicated to our city through her extensive work in the community. She has served as a mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Edmonton and supports several causes including
the Give Me Shelter Campaign, Read in Week, Kids With Cancer Society and the Edmonton Burn Treatment Society. She also helped establish the annual Global News Wardrobe Sale that benefits local charities, including the Terra Centre for teen parents.

Some career highlights include interviewing soccer superstar Christine Sinclair in a 60-minute one-on-one interview and introducing talk-show star Oprah Winfrey during her visit in 2013 in front of a sold-out crowd at Rexall Place. Carole Anne’s proudest accomplishment, however, was leading Global Edmonton’s Bust-a-Move team that raised more than $100,000 for breast cancer research in Alberta.

Carole Anne has been married to her best friend, Edmonton firefighter Connor Devaney, since July 2012. They are the proud parents of daughters Emmanuelle and Amélie, and son Sidney.
