Jill Croteau is an award-winning journalist for Global News with a passion for telling people’s stories. She is drawn to the types of stories that tug on the heart strings, and enjoys exploring topics that don’t always make the headlines. She takes pride in getting the story beyond the story.
To help feed her appetite for in depth storytelling Jill along with her colleague, photographer, Nate Luit have launched a podcast “Off Script” that airs monthly on Global News Radio 770 CHQR. It’s a unique look behind the scenes in the creation of their television news stories, highlighting the people who are making profound differences in our city.
“I admire the strength in so many people I have come across who trust me to share their personal experiences with Calgarians,” she says. “It’s a responsibility I respect and never take for granted.”
Jill is proud and humbled by the international and national awards she has won for some of her investigative reporting and her work with diverse communities.
Jill calls Calgary home. It’s here where she and her husband Chris are raising their two daughters, Sophia and Sadie.
