Gemma Lynne Stroobant
Gemma Lynne Stroobant is the weather specialist on Global Calgary’s Weekend Morning News.
When not on-air, Gemma is backstage producing the show by setting up features and guests.
Gemma graduated from SAIT with an Honours Diploma in Broadcast News, she also has a certificate in Public Relations from Mount Royal College.
She has lived all over the prairies, from Yorkton and Regina to Winnipeg, but is happy to be back home in Calgary. Gemma says she knew Calgary was where she wanted to stay, without a doubt. After all, nowhere else has our Chinooks.
You may remember seeing Gemma’s smiling face (with the giant headphones) as she was Global’s first Helicopter Traffic Reporter in 2007. She spent a couple of years flying over our city skyline in Global 1 giving you the first look at Calgary’s roads, before officially joining Global Television in 2009.
When she’s not working, Gemma enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter. Gemma could be a food connoisseur as she loves checking out the latest restaurants with her family. She is truly passionate about keeping healthy and loves working out at the gym and running outdoors (to compensate for her love of eating).
WATCH: Gemma talks about growing up in Alberta, why she loves this province so much, and her love of all things food related.
