Gord Steinke
Retired News Anchor

Award-winning journalist, singer-songwriter, bestselling author and one of the region’s most popular news anchors, Gord Steinke, retired from Global Edmonton on August 31, 2022, after 30 years with the station.

A true legend and a pillar of the community, Gord began his broadcasting career in Saskatchewan, where he attained his Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Communications from the University of Regina. His first job was in print journalism, then radio, before becoming a television reporter and anchor in Regina.

After several years in the U.S. Gord returned to Canada and joined ITV (now Global Edmonton) in 1992. His hiring proved to be very popular with viewers as Edmontonians voted Gord their favourite news anchor several times over the years.

One of Gord’s most memorable career moments was when he reported live from the scene during the devastating Fort McMurray wildfires in 2016. Global Edmonton won 2 prestigious international Edward R. Murrow awards for its coverage. That year he was also recognized by his journalism colleagues with a RTDNA Canada Lifetime Achievement Award.
