David Baxter joined the Global Regina news team in August 2015. The (almost) lifelong Saskatchewan boy was born in Porcupine Plain, grew up in Melfort, lived in McTaggart while working for the Weyburn Review, and graduated from the University of Regina School of Journalism in 2012.
His broadcast career began in Fort St. John, B.C., at CJDC where he was a TV reporter and radio anchor.
After 14 months in northern B.C. David returned to Saskatchewan to work for CTV Saskatoon. He primarily worked on its morning show in a behind the scenes role, but every now and again reported for the evening news. After another 14 month stint David jumped ship to Shaw TV in Saskatoon, working on the show “Go! Saskatoon,” and covering community interest stories.
David was also part of a three-person production team that made a documentary on Mormon missionaries that went to the Montreal World Film Festival in 2012.
When he’s not reporting the news David can frequently be found running, biking, or longboarding around Wascana Lake, playing board games, and trying out craft beers. Also keep an eye out for him at Rider games; he’s usually wearing a sport coat and Rider-themed luchador mask.
