Dallas Flexhaug is a born and raised Calgarian who brings nearly fifteen years of experience to her role on Global News Morning which airs weekdays 5-9am.
Dallas began her career with Global News in 2005 at Global Lethbridge and made the move to Global Calgary in 2007. Some of her most memorable moments with Global News are following a tornado for two hours live on the air from the studio when it hit Calgary over the noon hour in 2015, and taking part in the 2013 flood coverage. Dallas is also proud to have been a part of the 2017 Global News Morning of Giving where $20k was raised for the Magic of Christmas. She also enjoys those long election days in the newsroom and has interviewed everyone from former Prime Minister Stephen Harper, to NASA astronaut Terry Virts and comedian Steve-O.
Her broadcasting career began in 2004 at CJDC in Dawson Creek, BC where she worked as a videographer and anchor.
Dallas has a Communication Studies degree from the University of Calgary and a Broadcast News diploma from SAIT.
When she’s not at work, you can find Dallas spending time with her husband, son and daughter. She never turns down a good vegetarian meal, a trip to the mountains, or a visit south of Calgary to her parents ranch with all the family around.
