Erin Chalmers co-anchors Global News Morning weekdays with Shaye Ganam on Global Edmonton from 5AM to 9AM.
Erin was born and raised here in Edmonton, Alberta and is proud of “Our City.” Since graduating from NAIT (Northern Alberta Institute of Technology), she has worked as an anchor and reporter in all three Prairie Provinces, eventually making her way back home to Edmonton in 2008.
In 2011, Erin was recognized with a National RTDNA Award for her continuing coverage of Maddox Flynn, a young Edmonton boy with cystic hygroma, a rare birth defect that causes a growth to form in the head and neck area. Her reporting won the hearts of Edmontonians and Canadians and was later featured on the Global News program 16X9.
Erin’s biggest goal is to provide the information people need and in doing so she hopes to make a difference in their life and/or the lives of others. She and her husband Chris married in 2009 and welcomed their son, Logan, in January 2011. Their second son, Luke, was born a couple years later.
Her spare time is spent with family and friends, with hopes of golfing more in the summer and skiing more in the winter.
