Connor O’Donovan joined the Global Regina newsroom as a digital broadcast journalist in April 2019.
After finding a meeting point for his love of writing and photography in TV journalism, he enrolled in NAIT’s Television Broadcasting program in 2014.
Following stints with CityNews Edmonton and the CKUA Radio Network, Connor hauled all of his possessions across the Prairies to the Queen City. He’s excited to find out what makes Regina and southern Saskatchewan tick while slowly being converted into a Riders fan.
When not on the clock, Connor enjoys hiking, biking, and general meandering in the great outdoors. He also loves travel, a highlight of doing so being his 2014 trip through Nepal to Everest base camp with two of his childhood friends.
If he must be indoors, he tries to spend most of that time convincing his girlfriend to join him in coffee shops, restaurants, pubs or any other place of business that offers things to consume. Sometimes he drags himself to the gym to counteract all that eating.
While his CFL loyalties may be flexible, his sporting roots will, of course, remain attached to the Edmonton Oilers.
