For a girl from the city, Gabriela Panza-Beltrandi’s career has brought her to some of the coldest parts of Canada.
Gabriela grew up in Toronto, where she graduated from Ryerson University’s journalism program in 2016. During university, she interned in newsrooms across Western Canada, including a brief stint at Global Regina.
Promised adventure and a great view of the Northern Lights, Gabriela packed her bags and headed to Yellowknife, N.W.T., to work as a reporter and anchor for Moose FM in 2016.
In 2017 she joined the CBC as a reporter and newsreader. For three years she reported on the goings-on in Yellowknife and travelled to communities across the sub-Arctic to tell their stories, before making the move to Global News in slightly-warmer Saskatoon in 2020.
When she’s not in front of a camera, Gabriela loves being behind it, making short-films in her spare time. She also enjoys watching scary movies, biking, baking and finding interesting places to travel. Her favourite destination: Uruguay, South America.
