She spent more than two years reporting in the field as a video journalist for Global Durham, producing, writing, shooting, editing and appearing in stories that aired across Canada. Her storytelling has helped create change across Durham Region’s eight municipalities — her coverage of the flooding in Clarington in 2017 led to legislative changes that aided flood victims in the area. She has also shown a human touch in telling heartwarming stories, such as her Remembrance Day feature about the friendship forged between a Second World War veteran and a five-year-old girl.

Pazzano has represented the Global News team at fundraising events and panels, and she continues to have a passion for public speaking and supporting local causes.

Her first gig at Global News was as an intern at The Morning Show. Since then, she has also contributed to the Global News Toronto team as an editorial assistant and assignment co-ordinator, monitoring breaking news and chase producing.

In 2014, Pazzano graduated with honours from Ryerson University’s School of Journalism, where she returned to teach the Producing the News digital journalism class four years later.

She also shot, produced, edited and co-hosted stories for her own arts-and-culture journalism project, Girl About Toronto TV.

She has interned and volunteered at stations across Toronto, including ET Canada, CTV News Toronto and Rogers TV.

Pazzano especially enjoys multimedia storytelling, including photojournalism — she spent her weekends and summers in university working as a photojournalist at snapd Pickering/Ajax.
