Born and raised in the Lower Mainland, Jill Bennett could be seen on Global BC and heard on 980 CKNW for the past twenty years. As a TV reporter she covered everything from when charges were laid in the Air India case to breaking the news of Cory Monteith’s death in a Vancouver hotel.
Jill has traveled extensively, including on a journalism grant to Indonesia where she reported on the recovery from the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami. Jill also spent time teaching Journalism to university students in Rwanda.
Her work has been honoured with a Webster Award and the RTDNA award for best Editorial Commentary.
In her free time Jill loves cycling, walking the Vancouver Seawall and heading to the gun range to target shoot. She also dotes on her two dogs, Duke and Moe.
The Jill Bennett Show airs Monday to Friday 12pm to 3pm.
