Global’s Dallas Flexhaug sits down with Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi for a look back at 2020 and a look ahead to 2021.
Dallas Flexhaug anchors Global News Morning Calgary weekdays from 5-9 a.m. She loves live interviews and hearing from the community.
Born and raised in Calgary, Flexhaug earned her Bachelor of Communication Studies degree from the University of Calgary and SAIT.
She began her broadcast news career in 2004 in Dawson Creek, B.C. In 2005, she joined the Global News family in Lethbridge, before moving back to Calgary in 2007. She has been an anchor, reporter and producer with the team ever since.
Her career highlights include: travelling to Texas to compare the changing energy sector landscape between Alberta and Texas, being at the heart of the BC wildfires in 2017, and covering the Fort McMurray floods of 2020 in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Flexhaug is also the first to put her hand up to be part of any election coverage.
Some of her favourite interviews include: Patrick Duffy (Hello….”Dallas” the hit 80s TV show!), Astronaut Terry Virts (yes, she asked him about aliens), UFC champ George St-Pierre (her favourite MMA fighter), comedians Tom Green and Harland Williams (they talked about all things Canadian: swiss chalet, moose, and the Ogopogo), and illusionist Darcy Oake (she still can’t figure out how he did that trick with a playing card in her mouth).
Flexhaug is also proud to be a part of Global News Morning’s annual Morning of Giving show, which has raised tens of thousands of dollars for the Magic Of Christmas.
When she’s not at work, you can find Flexhaug with family, carting around her son and daughter to various lessons, going out for a good meal, or spending time at her parents ranch south of Calgary.
